Anyone have a mill? And a lathe...

Regular ol' end mill, Bridgeport or something, don't care if it's belts or gears, or if you run it or I run it...

I need to mill a flat for the tension bolt on a backing block pin. Not much to remove, but it is heat treated tool steel. It would be great if I could clean up the radius on the lathe,'s pretty rough right now and could be taken down a few thou.

I can just get another pin (the correct one, with the flat already milled) for free, but I've got this one, if I can find a mill it won't take long.

Will trade a few bucks or some opaque beer.

Scratch that, I have a solution that might work. If it pans out, anyone know a place that can do precision grinding?

What kind of grinding? I have a surface grider, mill, and a lathe and might consider trading monies or jager depending on what needs to be done. Post pics if you can.
