Anyone with a lathe want to make a little money off me?

I'm building some stems from cro-mo. I need to have some top caps machined from steel, preferably cro-mo. If you've ever seen a Salsa quill stem, think one of those, except for steel and not aluminum -- these will be brazed in place. Need 2, could go as high as 10 if it gets the price low. I will send you pictures of a Salsa top cap, and dimensions.

Email me at pruckelshaus@ gmail . com if you can help.

Thanks,

Pete

Hit up Alex Meade http://www.alexmeade.com/Tools.htm seems like a go-to guy for this sort of thing.
I'd be down for a few of those if you have to get extra and you think you might not use them.

OK, if anyone else is interested in something like this, let me know. Might be a group buy opportunity. However, all I need are caps that will fit 7/8 x .048 wall thickness tubing, so that's all I'm planning on having made.

Did you get your caps made? I have used Emachine.com a couple of times to have braze one turned in a larger quanity then I wanted to do myself. Alpha Engineering & manufacturing In Minneapolis did the work for me. Todd's number was 763 542-8860 a year+ ago. Andy.

since he never followed up with me, I'm assuming he got someone to make them or didn't need them yet
