Default Greater Boston area: Need machine shop to heli-coil my Brembo caliper

Anyone know of a machine shop in the greater Boston area that can fix my Brembo caliper that had a bolt snap off inside of it during removal? I'd like to have it drilled out and heli-coiled or time-serted.

I've called almost all of the machine shops in Waltham that are listed towards the top of the Google search results, with limited success. Hoping one of you guys in the area have dealt with this before!

Thanks!

I had to Time-Sert one of my calipers a couple months ago. Bel-Metric in Tyngsborough has the Time-Sert kit that you need.

As for doing the actual work - not sure. I ended up giving it a go myself, and it came out perfect.

I'd offer to do it for you for a beer, but I convert mine over to 12x1.25 instead of 12x1.50 If you dont mind 12x1.25 (Threads of the all Subaru Non-Brembo front calipers), hit me up.

Also, almost any machine shop should be able to install a threaded insert...

Tell me more about how you did the research and designed those and paid for them.

Fair warning to anyone: If you go to Custom Machine, get a quote in writing.
