Looking for decent welder

Does anyone on the forum know of a welder competent enough to weld a crossmember into a truck frame? I would prefer someone who could work on this from their rig, as I will have to do a fair amount of disassembly/reassembly and don't want to have to leave this project somewhere in pieces. I would rather have it in pieces in my garage. I figured this section of the forum would give me the fewest "my brother's uncle"s landlord knows a guy who welds" responses.

I live in Galveston.

No need for a rig for that job. , a simple flux core machine can handle that. I just built a x member for my car and welded it all up with a 110 fc machine

I have a stick setup that I can use either 110 or 220 but I would prefer it done with something other than FCAW. This crossmember is attached to the front lower control arm mount so I would like for it to be properly done.

Ok, I will send you a message once I pick up the donor frame and pull the good crossmember out.

No to hijack, but along the same lines:

Looking for someone to weld up a small crack in the headstock of my Duc. Less than a 5 minute job. If someone has a portable set up that's in the Clear Lake (or surrounding area), let me know.

Thanks,
Matt
