Machine shop in SFO bay area

Hey guys,

I need a few wheel spacers and a rear rotor spacer machined. Does anyone have any recommendations for a shop in and around this area? What I have is paper drawings of the shapes. The whole thing is not too complicated, but it would be nice to actually show them to a shop. I tried a quick search around here, but all the posts were asking about engine/radiator work, and the posts were old.

I won't say pleased, but I was shocked for sure at the quote It was above 300 bucks for the rear wheel spacer + rotor spacer, at which point I stopped. I can't justify paying more for spacers than I did for the wheel.

That is good to know, i have a friend with a business that had them do some work for him, he was pleased but it was also a volume deal so quantity of scale discount must have entered into it. Ironbasher1

I was just looking for a machinist in the bay area to machine a pilot bushing. One of the members in my club recommended this shop. I don't know anything about this place though.

Try checking with Robt Cancilla Machine 708 W. Julian, San Jose 408/293-3046.


A club member has a machine shop in Gilroy, but that may be a bit far for you. Let me know if your interested.

Call Earl Minkler @ Valley Machine, 192 Airway Blvd, Livermore. 925-455-1266

He's only in the shop on weekday mornings. Tell him Catfish sent you.

Good luck!

I have a lathe and mill here in Sac-town. What's the OD of the disc spacer? Timeline?
