CNC doesn't mean better - it's only faster.
Many times with cnc ground cams one can see the stepper resolution on the surface.

I am in Australia & we have been refacing flat tappet factory lifters for decades due to the high cost of new ones. They are then as good as new. If you want a set of quality lifters, reface factory lifters or lifters that were made before they came from China, Mexico etc.

Many good ones out there, +1 on bullet.. They did mine and it has worked well. Mark there helped me to define the specs. Also got my Morel 5436 lifters from them.

To do this 100%, they would have to profile your cam, make a new master (or two if it has different lobes on the intake and exhaust) then use that to make a new cam. This is cost prohibitive, plus you are working off a copy of a copy... of a well used lobe.

What any cam grinder will likely do, is profile your cam and choose some similar existing lobe masters, and produce your camshaft that way.

You may be ahead to go with a professional, give them all of your engine/car specs, your expectations, and what you do with the car... and let them produce a modern grind that will have a very similar personality to the old one, yet make significantly more power. Mike Jones and Bullet would both be good choices for what you want.

Good Luck
