Default Need sights cut and fitted 1911

Hi all,
I know it seems like everyday someone is asking for a gunsmith in the bay area, maybe I need to change professions and cash in on the massive market... but here I am asking for a gunsmith either in, close to, or somewhere within driving range to the east bay who can take my blank 1911 slide and machine the dovetail for a Dawson front and Bomar rear.
I have the sights, no need for finishing, its 4140 and in the white. I just need these sights done so my 2011 build will be complete.

ANY recommendations are welcome. Thanks in advance!

Nice work, but I cut my sights myself in the end. Finished that gun and built another one.

Yep, I do all my own mill/lathe work. I was just in a pinch didn't have the right dovetail cutter at the moment.
