Default Recomended Machine Shop in Brighton, MI

Hey. I need some bearing pressed off and the new ones pressed on.

Also looking for some rotor turning?

Could somebody recommend a good machine shop for this in or around Brighton.


Thanks

most shops should be able to do this just not machine shops. in Brighton- Brighton auto off old 23 just north of grand river is an awesome repair shop. have had a few jobs done there personally and many for business. in whitmore lake creative cars. i worked there in the past and they can do this no problem. on whitmore lake rd just south of north Territorial. next to the mulch place.

if you call the hartland HS auto shop i know they have the equipment. if you call the school the teachers name is Ron Weston. in the past he had what was called auto club where anybody willing to follow his safety rules, mostly students but not exclusively, was allowed to use the auto shop equipment for free. if you have the know how you could try that rout and save a buck.

I know they have a Hydrolic Press and Brake Lathes.

Likely but the nearest NAPA store is 15 miles away. In Ann Arbor.

I will check out these other places... Thanks a lot

Besides a personal reference is often better than a shot in the dark.
