Machine shop recommendations?

Post by zeropistons » Wed May 15, 2019 12:00 am

Need to have a motor drilled for over sized engine studs. Last time I used Richards large drill press and worked pretty good. I would prefer to have it done on a milling machine — Bridgeport style. Want the clearances to be prefect. Anyone have a shop they know of?

Just chiming in with a idea for timesert use and if they have a jig for your setup like with LS and Northstar stuff. In case the machine shop thing doesn’t pan out is all.

He's got my shit right now, he better not retire!

Dennis is unquestionably who I'd go to.

He did a damn fine job on my big turbo rice engine, but if the man recommended someone else do it I would go that direction. He is a stand up guy all the way around.
