Tool Testing?

>I have agreed to test a pre production 14” band saw for a tool manufacture.

I bought an 18” band saw from this group 2 years ago and I had a few problems with it. I detailed the problems in an email. They corrected the problems promptly and to my surprise my inputs were put right into production.

My question is, is there generally any type of compensation for testing tools for a manufacture? I don’t mind doing it, I love new tools and tuning them up and using them, but what is the custom for working with manufactures like this? Has anyone done this type of work for a tool manufacture?
