Don't know about surrey, I use B & J in P.Q.

dude I use to machine and I can tell you it is a waste of time getting them to do it they WILL do it the same way you can do it at home with a reaming bit and a vice

just get-r-done[cheers]

arnt the bits like 80 bux? i figured a shop would charge alot less so i thought id do it that way.

wat companys make the reemer? iv seen some on the net and know that snap-on does to but i heard the snap-on one isnt great

Go to kbc. They will have a cheap chineese reemer. Your going to have to drill it close then ream it out. I have some good machinists at my shop but we aint cheap.

I have the Xkut one now, killed the snap on one.
you do have to drill it close to size.
so fixturing the arm for drilling takes more time then the reaming
