Default I need a friend with a lathe

I need to have grooves cut into the outer circumference of aluminum tubing to use snap rings in. Life is so unfair.

Specifically, I would like a piece of 3/4" diameter metal rod with a groove for a snap ring at one end. The rod doesn't need to be more than 1-2" in length. I need it for testing purposes, and if it works out then I would like to commission someone to make a small run of a final product. The final product would be 2" in length, 3/4" diameter, and would have 3-4 snap ring grooves at one end, spaced about 3/16" or 1/4" apart. Depending on price, I'd probably want 25-50 of them to start. Final product material would be aluminum or brass.
