Default WTB (Want To Buy) - Looking for Welder in Southern NH

I'm converting to EBIAB and need to install a 1.5" tri-clover ferrule welded onto my stainless kettle. While I'm at it I may as well add another. I'll pick up and drop off, pay up front, wait while you work. Whatever.

If anyone knows of someone who charges reasonable rates for quality work I'd appreciate the lead. I'm not looking for a mirror finish but I don't want something looking burnt and nasty. I can do that myself!

This guy does nice tig work. Did all 3 of my keggles x 3 stainless couplers in each. Tough to find good welders out there.

Make sure he backgasses his welds. Had an exhaust guy say he knew stainless and he sugared the inside of my kegs badly. If you were down here I would be able to help you out. But backgassign the welds is key when doing stainless.

The weld might look good on the topside, but inside it will start rusting and have nice holes for gunk

And flux will kind of work, BUT it will be a bitch to get out of the kettle after. Backgassing is really the best answer

Yeah, I have a problem asking another grown man if he's back-gassing enough.

Talk to Joe over at Border Brew supply in Salem, Nh. He's reasonably priced
