And shipping....

It's not just the cost of the materials - it's the R&D and manufacturing costs that go into the value of something.

For an extreme example, a $1,000 high end Intel CPU *costs* less than $100 to make - closer to $50 really - but the R&D to design that thing is in probably closer to $1 Billion - so they have to charge more to pay for the R&D and production. Again, extreme example, but like Mike says, he's a business and can't justify sending repeated free replacements and paying for the parts and shipping each time.

Sounds like the OP broke it. Since he hasn't chimed in here after all these comments, it's a safe bet he knows he screwed the pooch on the second install and has no right to demand a(nother) free replacement.
