Not sure if there is an appropriate area in the forums, but I'm looking for a welder that can do stainless. South of Chicago or in NW Indiana. I'm willing to pay or trade ball lock cornies for labor.

Hmm! I was looking last year. Not much luck. It's cheaper to just buy weld less fittingings.

I'm in the same area, and the "one guy I know who welds" doesn't seem too interested in my business. When I can afford the equipment to get started, I think I'm just going to learn to do it myself.

The cheapest that I've found is 100 for a plasma hole cut and weld. This seems high. I'll check around with some of the hacker space groups or local brew clubs.

I had a guy on the north side. He did good work. I cut everything myself he just did the welds. I can't remember a price but it was cheap.

Post an Ad on Craigslist under "looking for". I posted an Ad looking for a welder and got a dozen inquires by the next day. I met a guy who plasma cut two kegs and welded in 6 couplings for $100 and some homebrew. Good luck!!

I'd be willing to trade labor for corny kegs. We can cut the tops and weld up anything you need. We are based in Oak Lawn.
