Default Off Set Crank Grinding

Who on the West Coast, does off set crank pin grinding? The West Coast, because of shipping charges.

My local guy, will only commit to doing .010, off center. He won't do more, because it tears up his grinding wheels.

I don't need much, at this time, only .040/.050 but, if I ever come up with a Merc crank, I like to do a full .065

I do plan to talk to Tim. I got a private message regarding him and his Face Book page and I looked at it.

A very impressive man!

But, I will talk to all three. Again thank you all.

Update:
John Specialty Service, no longer off set grinds cranks, since the owner retired. They are still in business though.

I talked to Tim, a very nice guy. Price is reasonable and I may, very well go with him, if nothing else but, just to have more conversations

Mulders, has answered his phone today but, I will keep trying.

I just talked to Mulder and he is still doing it.

He doesn't have a set price and quotes $200 minimum and says that $300 is about maximum, depending on how much time it takes him.
