Default WTF: Some one who works with aluminum (lathe)

I need someone who has the capability to turn aluminum into shift knob inserts. I will provide a sample of what I need. Someone on this forum must know somebody who does this kind of work. I'd appreciate a recommendation.

Thanks!

Got your PM. Thanks for the info. If he's going to be at Subiefest, for sure, let me know. If not, then I'd appreciate your offer in helping me contact him. The part I need is very small, and hopefully, fairly cheap to produce. I await your answer.

If you are looking for production work PM me. I am in a full production machine shop jemcoinc dot com. We do one offs but the machine time is not cheap. Your prints only.

Yeah, unless you have access to your own lathe and know how to operate it, you'd be better off buying one.

Machine time + labor can run hundreds of dollars for a one-off.

Have you tried contacting Kartboy? They already make knobs, pretty sure it wouldn't be hard to turn the knob down to the correct diameter to insert into another knob.

There is also EMachineshop dot com for those who want to do their own one offs and send to a machine shop. It ain't cheap. As mentioned, setup and machine time is $$$.
