REQ: Machine Shop in Chicago area for small one-time job

I am looking for a machine shop to drill extra holes in a bicycle hub.
http://www.amclassic.com/en/products/hubs/cassettebody.php
This hub is available with 24 total holes (12 on each flange) I would like a shop to drill a new hole between every existing hole to create a 48 hole hub (24 holes on each flange).
The holes should be about 2 mm (0.079 in.) in diameter. Straight holes are O.K. Countersinking is not required.
Any suggestions appreciated. Please post to group.
TIA

At this time, I would rather take this to a shop.

Just a few questions, what do you think this is going to cost you?
Is this for a tandem bicycle?
I'd try the yellow pages unless your idea was to see if the hobby types here were willing take this on for beer money.

That reminds me of the by-2-by-2 rule of thumb: what do you think that it SHOULD cost? Twice that is what it probably WILL cost. Twice again is what it COULD cost. Works surprisingly often.

And while you're answering questions -- will there be enough meat left after you're done adding the extra perforations?
I gotta do this one day -- I've had a LeMond "Alpo De Huez" sitting in my garage for years, waiting for a 44-spoke hub so I can turn it back into an "Alpe De Huez". At 250 pounds, I'm a bit too hard on a 32-spoke wheel on a short-coupled bike.

Some dowel rod embeded in wood blocks? If you have the right cutters you can play 'Tower of Hanoi'.

I figured that much when I saw it.
The problem is..is that I have a number of cutters the same diameter with the same arbor sized hole and others with different sized arbor holes. Id rather keep the cutters seperated by the arbor size and tooth counts. Just makes it easier for me to find something I need.
Im thinking more and more about the cabinet with dowels...its very similar to your idea, just vertically..but something about letting them hang there, vibrating their teeth together with vibration and sonic booms and whatnot..bothers me.
