Need a couple parts machined

I'm looking for suggestions to get a couple parts machined either out of steel or aluminum.

They're not large but have a few threaded sections.

They're for adapting an electric motor output shaft to a steel tube (wheel hub).

Does anyone have recommendations or know anyone that could help?

Thanks

It's kind of a one-off...

It's a mobility scooter motor that needs its transaxle output shafts mated to wheelbarrow wheels

I'll go snap some pics.

I've had Denver Mill and Lathe do some work for me. The actual machinist is a trials rider and he's helped me out a few times w. little things. Not sure if he could help, but asking couldn't hurt. He is a little spendy, but then he does stuff I can't

homerj, I reacted a bit harshly, too. If it was in Jo Momma I'd let it slide. But here....

Thanks, all, for the recommendations. I appreciate it!

henpecked, I'll shoot you a PM.

ktmdoc, Woody's is...was...off of Santa Fe somewhere?
