Default Engine Machining/ fab services offered

I have an engine machine shop. I am set up for race chevy stuff, but I am also into this old stuff. I also have metal fab equipment.
I'd be happy to help anyone out. It gets boring building blown alcohol chevys all the time (hard to believe, right?)
Fab.. welders, mill, lathe, plasma cutter, etc.
I like to trade for stuff too. Barter is where it is at.
Let me know if I can help out.
I'm not trying to get rich. I am trying to help guys out.

wagspe208, I have a ca.1912 Sta Rite 1 1/2 HP that needs some work. Work involved would be bore and sleeve, clean up piston ring grooves and lands, crank turned (possibly built up and turned) and valve guide liners. On the valve guides the reason I am thinking liners vs new guides is the way the head is made new guides would destroy the original look of the head. I hope to secure funds to start this project at some point next year. If I could get your contact info for future reference that would be great. I am originally from Centralia, IL. and come that way several times a year to visit friends and family. I now live in Sprinfield, MO. Thank you.

Always good to know the location of another shop.

I've always found alcoholic engines to be entertaining even if they are chevy's
