Default resurfacing manifold flange.

I just got back from 3 machine shops and none of them can do it or they want 70 dollars to do it. Anyone know of any shops around here that can do it? Also wondering how much people pay to have this service done.

I paid $50CDN here at a machine shop. They had to tack weld some temp mounts on the flange so they could mount it securely.

The second time (after having a couple cracks welded) I paid $40 at an automotive shop where they used a huge industrial belt sander. If I have to do it again I'll just go back to the machine shop.
