  • Machinist recommendations...?

    Have to get some minor custom machining work done on my front brake hubs to allow my new aftermarket wheels to fit. Any recommendations in Twin Cites metro?

    What all do you need done? Turning down the hub diameter? If so, how much and what vehicle is it for?

      Yes, need to turn down the hub diameter on a Mustang hub. Nothing drastic, just need some trimming on the outer surface (beyond the bearing) to allow some clearance for the center cap. Also need the lug holes drilled out for larger extended lug studs.

        I could turn it down for you, but my drill press is not currently operational. I could do the stud holes on somebody else's mill, but I only go there once a week. What kind of turnaround time you looking for?

        Edit: I keep forgetting there's another drill press here I could use. I do also have a press if you wanted the new studs installed instead of just drilled for.
