Default SS welder in New York City?

Anyone know a welder for SS in NYC. More specifically brooklyn heights.

Looking to have some tri clover ferules welded to my kettle and my search so far is bringing up guys that I wouldn't trust to do it right.

Thanks all.

If I were looking for welders for thin gauge SS, and I couldn't find any that looked like they were good enough, I would look for bicycle frame welders. If you can find a guy who can weld a SS bike frame, he could definitely weld a kettle. SS bike tubes are a lot thinner than most kettles.

I would be prepared to pay a lot of money for that. Good welders aren't exactly cheap.
