Default Gunsmith service bay area and surrounding

Anyone recommend a gunsmith that deals with AR barrel threading/ rethreading, in or around the SF bay area?

Looked on yelp and called several, no one picks up.

Price went up at the beginning of this year.

That would be my guess.
Unless he has a tardis.

Sometimes people fly and Uber though.
I am not far from Van Nuys, Whiteman or Burbank Airports.

I had to look up Tardis.
Anyhow, I'm still looking for someone to install an A2 front sight on a new barrel I bought for my old milspec (want to keep the look).
The world gets smaller every day.
