Yes I can certainly do the machine work to make this happen, it's not just a matter if I want to run down that path? Thank you for responding.
You may want to try to reach out to Jim Merz, he recently had new cages made for some Campy BMX pedals and had to anodize, bend and rivet them back on.

While I have no reason to doubt your skill, I do know that this sort of thing is not successfully accomplished by mere mortals, they were built that way to be bullitproof.

Jim is one of the few people that can get this done with the same results as the factory, he may be willing to advise.

He has a FB page and the pedals he did are back in Feb. 2020, good luck.
