They have dedicated devices for what they specialize in and offer as service to folks, sure these tools can be used for other tasks but they choose not too. They have a relationship with another local shop which they would refer anyone looking for having a flywheel surfaced or rotors turned.

The place they would refer you too is Tennyson Machine Shop (Ask for Sal)

Thanks for the advice, I guess it is best to just go by and talk to them.

It is just seems a little cloudy on the process because this is our first time building an engine. It is for LeMons so we won't be sad if it blows up in 5 laps (ok we will be sad but we will be expecting it).

My brother and his LeMons team did some PnP block/head work on their Sylvia on their own. A lot of Dremeling later...

That makes sense. I realize my post sounds a little stupid as I know nothing about their business.
