Anybody know a good machinist?

Or at least a cheap one? I had a little mishap last weekend when my chain snapped at about 60mph and busted a hole in my cylinder head. So I removed the head, and am now on my 2nd layer of JB weld to repair the hole. The problem is, it just occured to me that now that I removed the head I now have to remove the cylinders and have both pieces lapped to seal properly. Waaay beyond my abilities, so till then I basically have a rolling frame in my garage.

This is what I do for a living. We can resurface the cyl block and the head. If needed we can weld the hole in the head as well. I do my own tig welding here in house. Shoot me a pm if you like or call.
