anyone know of a machine shop in rosarito?


I need a machine shop in rosarito or primo tapia or near. I need to drill out steering knuckles to 7/8" and my drill bit broke. Its a bigger, not normal size for a hardware store, drill bit so a machine shop that could finish the job with a drill press or preferably a mill is preferred, but at this point I will take anything. HELP! I really don't want to drive up to tijuana for a five minute job.

Roger. I was recommended a shop in rosarito and they said yeah no problem and took it in the back. They brought me back a wobbled out lopsided hole almost an 1/8” bigger than I need. Not good for a high tolerance part. So...off to the junkyard I go to get a new part then I’ll try to get ahold of Leon or a new bit.
