    Default Lathe



    I'm building a slip and twist traction bar and I think I'm going to have to get a piece of Dom turned down on a lathe like 10 thousandths or so. If anyone has one in the Denver area I'll pay in beer or cash.
    Pm me if available
    Thanks

    So I had contacted advanced cylinders about machining down a piece of DOM about 40 thousandths or so. They said ok but it would be at least a week before they could get to it. No problem Im not in a huge rush their labor rate seemed fair. So I dropped off the tubing. After about 3 weeks I thought I would check to see if its done as 3 weeks is far more than 1 week. They hadn't touched it. Ok, "when will you get to it?", They said they would call me back with a day they could get to it-which seemed like a blow off. A couple days go by and no call, so I call them. They said they would get to it soon they have been busy. After the month had passed I called again, "we'll get it on the lathe this afternoon" they said. I call 3 or 4 days later to see if I can pick it up, "its scheduled to go on the lathe this morning," they said. I wait 4 more days and just show up knowing likely nothing has happened and that is what happened-nothing. So I took my tube and politely left, all the old guy did was give me a sorry. Its pretty aggravating when a company is just shooting out lies to get you to leave them alone. I gave them more than enough time. Anyway, found a well equipped machine shop called Rex Machine, they seem legit, will give this a go again.

    It kinda sucks when places will push off the little guy to run through big jobs.
    It would at least be a little better if they would tell ya up front,
