I am not sure how much the machining will cost.

The machinist is a super-nice guy. I have a feeling he will be giving me a really good deal.

I mentioned the idea to him of saving out a file to be able to share with other people, and he said it would be no problem.

He is a hot-rod guy, and I think he is just really excited to be working on an electric project.

I will be able to ask him how much time he put into it and at least be able to provide that time estimate to others. Or, better yet, save other people a lot of time by providing them with a file of "the shape" of a Geo Metro transmission housing.
