How much did you pay to have your heads re-finished/decked flat?

A local place is charging me $50 for one/single Twisted Wedge aluminum head...

The heads we're not perfectly flat, but probably would have been fine. But, I figured might as well do it right and have them re-surfaced.

Just wondering if that was a reasonable price or not.

Also, when he was checking for flatness he had a straight edge bar and what looked like a piece of brown postal paper. He'd put the paper under the straight edge and press down...not sure what he was doing. Last time I checked I borrowed a snap-on straight edge and shined a light on the opposite side.

Anyways, thanks in advance.

$75 for a pair. They were doing a valve job at the time so I'm not sure what it would be just for that since they already had the heads tore down.

That sounds about right. I think I paid around $100 for a pair of heads to be milled flat before I sold them on ebay.
