I can't imagine any repair to your 1st valve, short of replating all the rotors, that would warrant $600 worth of work. As John Swensen indicated, there are several options that a do-it-yourself-er could do at home. If you would like to discuss it further with a tubist that is also a repairman, feel free to contact me at dlstofer(AT)webtv.net or (770)603-0925.
