Where is the group buy thread on these? I searched and cannot find.. thanks!

Anyway, as much I appreciate the responses I'm still in search of a good machine shop in the Boston area that can help. Hub conversion, adapters etc. are kind of an extreme measure for me so I'll consider those if I don't find a shop in the next few weeks. Thanks!
Your willing to pay a premium or have a machine shop do the work but not go for a $315 kit? What?
