40g is an embarrassingly low tip for a mechano-hog. There should be some proportion to the value of the item (and the profit the crafter could have gotten if he'd sold it in AH), the amount of effort the crafter had to put into it, and the rarity of the pattern. As someone posted before (I forget who), you give a tip in the real world by calculating 10% of the value. If 10% is too much for you, at least give 5%, or make it worth his while. The engineer had to fly around buying the mats--he could have flown around doing dailies as well and earned more than 40g. I tipped the engineer who made my hog 500g. Yes, you could have gotten a guildie to make it for free. Why didn't you then? You were paying for convenience--you wanted it then and there. I receive 40g tips for cutting a gem. Mechano-hogs aren't quite in the same league.
