    Looks like everything is China or Tie-one-on. I want a couple of small run of 1,000 valves made and cannot find anybody to do them.

    Kibblewhite Precision Machining was started by the current owner's father in the early 1960s.

    They'd probably do auto valves, though motorcycles have been their main business since the beginning.
