    Where to get a small aluminum welding job done?


    I have a broken part which I would like to attempt to have welded back together. Does anyone know where I might go to have this done?

    Convenient cities, towns and neighborhoods include Cambridge, Somerville, Arlington, Brookline, West Roxbury, Roslindale, Hyde Park, Dedham, Needham, Norwood and so forth.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Photos are of how it's supposed to look, and how it is broken.

    That's going to be tricky. Where can you leave weld?

    I was thinking there's room on either side of the annulus, along its bottom edge.

    What prevents you from buying a new part? It's small, cant cost a whole lot of money.

    I've got a couple of aluminum TIG welding jobs lined up in for 2-3 weeks from now. I could have my welder/friend take a look at it and see if he can fix it while he's doing my work. Are you in a hurry?
