    Need someone who can weld.. and cut metal off.. here\'s the deal...

    I'm installing better leaf spring perches.. and I need them rewelded on the axle and they need to be moved in a little..
    I had to spread my leaf springs to get them to fit..
    Does anyone have a good metal cutter.. and portable welder so I can have this truck ready before the 30th.. for the Mason run?
    Thanks in advamce..

    why didn't you just ask me?

    do you have 220V outlets? i can weld them up but my welder uses 220 instead of 110.

    I can bring a torch, grinder, and a Miller Bobcat 250 over. All I will need is about a half days notice and what rods you want for the welder. Russel will need to do the work though, I suck at welding with stick.

    Just to let you all know, It's a mig welder and it works great! Just crank it up and weld slow! The perches he's using are solid steel and definately aren't going anywhere! I gave them to him and they're the same ones that I use... The same welder welded mine on! Just make sure you clean both serfaces before you start! I think he's stoping by tomorrow to pick up the welder, He'll probably get the dog later in the week like thurs!

    No problem.. everything is all measured and marked out.. I'll tack weld everything.. I'm just going to weld the perches level.. then fix them with degree shims.. Shouldn't be a problem.. Thanks Russell.. And Justin.

    i wouldn't weld them level...use the degree wheel and set them right. that way if you ever lift more or go doubler you don't have to have a 12 degree shim. do it right the first time! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I can bring the Miller Bobcat over early Sat morning. But I am going to Wimberley to work on my junk so I wont be able to stay to long...How's 9ish sound? I guess you don't need the torch anymore.
