    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)

    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.
