Does anyone care that most Mom and Pop Machine shops are disappearing?

Las Vegas has lost many in the last few years, No one is taking over for these Old timers Sad really.

I am not looking forward to the day when I need something machined and have to ship my stuff hope I never see that day.

This is a real problem everywhere. I know it is in the Greensboro, NC area. Dealerships don't rebuild engines any more. They just install crate engines. So, the demand for machine work has dropped and the old owners are retiring or worse. This is going to make it impossible to build a street rod with a hemi, nailhead or other old engine going forward.
