If anyone needs any welding or fabrication done I do it on the side. I have access to a machine shop and can fix just about anything. Let me know if you need some help.

No cnc, just conventional. Mostly just welding steel. I sold my big tig machine. I have seen that video posted several places. It's really neat how it works.

You ever build a t-top, radar arch or rocket launcher for a boat? I may put one on a boat in the future, and was trying to find a local place to get a price quote. It would be stainless steel, so not your typical mild steel bending/welding.

It's quite a project, but I'm thinking of something like this:

no stainless. In stainless that would probably run you 3500-6500.00 depending on who did it.

Yeah, I have gotten a few quotes that are in line with that range. The only problem is the people willing and able to do the work are all on the coast. A bit of a hassle to say the least.

I had a buddy that lived in canton and all he did was custom t tops and outriggers and stuff. He used to haul boats back and forth between here and the coast. he got so busy that he just moved to Florida.
