Question

Lloyd Industries manufactures electrical equipment from specifications received from customers. Job X10 was for 1,000 motors to be used in a specially designed electrical complex. The following costs were determined for each motor:
Materials . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $117
Labor . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 100
Factory overhead . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 83
Total. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $300
At final inspection, Lloyd discovered that 33 motors did not meet the exacting specifications established by the customer. An examination indicated that 18 motors were beyond repair and should be sold as spoiled goods for $75 each. The remaining 15 motors, though defective, could be reconditioned as first-quality units by the addition of $1,650 for materials, $1,500 for labor, and $1,200 for factory overhead.
Required:
Prepare the journal entries to record the following:
1. The scrapping of the 18 motors, with the income from spoiled goods treated as a reduction in the manufacturing cost of the specific job.
2. The correction of the 15 defective motors, with the additional cost charged to the specific job.
3. The additional cost of replacing the 18 spoiled motors with new motors.
4. The sale of the spoiled motors for $75 each.
5. If the reconditioned motors sell for $400 each, is Lloyd better off reconditioning the defective motors or selling them as is for $75 as spoiled goods?
