I need some work done on a very custom solid metal drive shaft. Lathe work, vertical splines, etc. and balancing. Can anyone recommend a shop? This is precision stuff, so no shade tree recs please.

I am down south, just wanting to add a little. Without knowing the details that should be a fairly easy project basically for any machine shop. Just talk to the owner or shop foreman letting them know exactly what you want and your expectations. In my first career, I was a machinist for 23 years. Started off in an industrial facility with a department of labor approved apprentice program. Just saying..........cC

Look up Joe Pieczynski at Advanced Innovations in Austin. Watching some of the stuff he does on his Youtube channel, I bet he can do anything you're wanting.

There is a couple in Bryan - College Station.
