    Need help finding machinist

    I have a Flightstar II SC that has a slightly bent aeliron horn. I have the drawing from Flightstar (see attached) showing the dimensions but am having trouble finding anyone locally who has the correct material and can make this part? Does anyone have any suggestions on who or where I may get this part manufactured?

    Thanks

    I believe that Sea, Air, and Land Restorations in Crescent City, FL at the Eagle's Nest Airpark does this type of work. Here is their phone number: (386) 467-8000. Website for the airpark is www.albatrosslady.com

    I can make parts

    I will help you if you can provide a better drawing of what you need. I am not professional machinist but a very experienced Home Builder with a pretty decent shop and equipment.

    You might not even need a machinist. Check out this site: http://www.emachineshop.com/

    It's really quite amazing. Use their CAD software to design your part, click a button and your part gets made. Way cool!

    Whether or not they have the proper material is something you'll need to investigate, but they do have a large inventory of different materials.
