Default Anyone in Seattle area available for machine work?

I’m currently working in the Seattle area and I’m in need of a bit of machine work. I have an aluminum engine part that needs to have 2.5mm removed off a flange. Anyone able to perform this simple task over the weekend or know some one who can?

Wish I could help but I do not know anyone there for machining. Nice to hear from you though.

I jumped all over my brother. He is in Yakima now. He professes zero knowledge of any folk he knows.

Doing a search on CarigsList I find two. do a search for "machining"

If you need that to run true to the threads it will take a bit more work, likely will have to thread a bar on a lathe then screw your disk onto that......

If that thread is metric not everyone is setup to cut metric threads.

I went to Canada four weeks ago and it took ten hours in customs. Not somehting I'd like to relive any time soon. Can we line up on each side and I just punt it over?

I'm not sure there is bandwidth available to track me.

I will have to check out CL. I haven't used that in some time. This is just a plug that needs to be trimmed to fit a cam bore. No threading, nothing fancy.

Chuck it up in a drill motor with a bolt and nut holding it and some Emory sandpaper will red neck you in service.. I assume you have a micrometer to check it.


Good to hear from you again on the forum. Thought you forgot your signin info.

From Seattle, it should be a short jaunt to Grizzly in Bellingham. Maybe take your part there and ask for a demo on a lathe?

I couldn't go to that candy store and escape without serious damage to my wallet. If you go, let me know how it turns out.

I have considered that. I have also been looking for lathes for sale in the classifieds thinking maybe I could talk the current owner into a small demo. No luck yet.
