anyone local to me weld?

i need to find a lawnsite guy on here that knows how to weld. i have a 6x16 trailer that needs some welding work. local trailer place wants 270-300 for welding and front end rebuild.

work to be done: fully cracked angle iron infront of wheels, move back in the front sides from being hacked out and pushed out 6" to haul a bush hog on a ford tractor.

I weld and looking on my map I'm only about 3" from you. Stop by tomorrow after lunch and I'll look at it. (I'm just kidding)
All equipment is wore out. <- Never mind. All equipment has been repainted and with new decals. It's like I have new mower's again!

What's the problem with paying the 300 dollars to have the trailer place do it? It's not a lot of money and it sounds from your description to be half a day of work at-least. When you say the angle iron is cracked are you talking posts and rails or are you talking the frame on the floor?

I would say that he is a little under priced, I would want more than that myself.
