    In search of a small machine shop in the Olympia, WA area.

    I need to add an additional support bracket to a pannier rack. Drilling, maybe a little welding.

    Not concerned about finish. I can buff and paint when I get home.

    Would like to find somebody who's comfortable doing the work while I supervise, but you can yell at me if I get in the way :)

    I had a kickstand shortened and welded at Ziegler's Welding downtown -- I'm happy with that limited work and they have been around forever.

    I work near Capital Machine on RW Johnson in Tumwater. I haven't had them do work but I spoke with a friendly guy there and they usually have a 1950s or '60s car parked out front. That has to be worth something on the credibility side of things.

    I'm not a vendor but just had a good contact with one that I though I'd share. Warm & Safe heated gear in Milwaukie Oregon. I took advantage of their trade up program to trade in my older Gerbing Jacket on a new Warm and Safe one today. The price was good, but the best part was that since they are local, if you call ahead you go right to their shop and try the stuff on to see if it will work for you. And they have an inmate discount (20% ish)!

    Yes, used them for the first time today. Much more "feeling" in them then the Gerbing Touring gloves I have that are bulky. Plus they are waterproof. Only rode in showers today, but stayed warm and dry!

    Looking for a recommendation for a certified Yamaha shop in Spokane that can do warranty/recall work.

    My buddy and I stored our WR250R's near the Spokane airport after finishing the CDR last fall. Both need the stators replaced due to the recall. Westside Motosports is near the storage unit, but wanted to see if anyone had strong feelings about them or any other vendor (negative or positive).

    I'm headed there in 2 weeks for a work trip and I'd like to get both bikes serviced while I'm in town.

    Thanks!

    Looking for someone who might be headed through Auburn Washington and could pick up some freight for us. Item weight is 700lbs and roughly 6'x5' in size. Shipping from Uline is pretty expensive so if I can save some $$ would be happy to pay you reasonable fee plus a couple gallons of delicious beer. PM me if interested.

    I am looking for a machine shop or steel fabricator in the Seattle - Redmond area (Eastside preferred).

    I need a custom-made bracket for mounting a hydraulic remote preload adjuster on my bike.

    Two potential designs:
    Single stainless steel plate, ~1mm thick, cut, drilled, with one bend, finished.
    Two-piece - solid aluminum machined, U-shaped bracket, drilled, with 4 screw threads cut, finished, ideally anodized.

    I'd provide the technical drawing.

    And as
