Crankshaft machine shop/knife-edging

I'm looking for a crankshaft shop that can do knife-edging, balancing, and whatever can be done to a crankshaft ( if I'm forgeting any, please input your suggestion). I am looking for a shop locally, preffered within the bay area but not too far from S.F. I have tried a few engine shops already but I have no luck, any info is appreciated.

The motor is being built: a super 2TG motor that will be pushing 450- 500 HP^_^. i tore down a 3t block and getting it ready to send it to a machine shop to get it bored out once my aftermarket pistons and piston rods arrive.

EFI 2tg head to be workin with in the future for this block.

knife edging

I recently purchased a CWT balancer
To knife edge. You have to set up the bob weights. Spin the crank. If its light and requires mallory. Knife edging will remove even more weight and require even more mallory. Mallory is not cheap. Then you remove the bob weights and mill the counterweights. This requires setting up the milling machine. Then the bob weights are put back on the crank and it is respun. You are talking hours of work and you still haven't balanced the crank yet. Most people will not pay the extra cost for this type of work. If you are willing to pay. I can't see that any machine shop would be willing to take your money.
