Your Favorite Aluminum Fabricator in Florida?

Anyone have a favorite? Iíd say anywhere from Miami to Fort Myers/Naples to Orlando. Including west palm.

Most are pros at screen porches. Not so much one off parts.

It has proven impossible to get my mast section.

Instead, Iíll get a larger, beefier oval mast section and use it as a pedestal with vertical bulkheads installed inside and a receptical for the current mast to sit in.

Any tips on where to find a good and reasonable cost fabricator thatís good with aluminum?

Re: Your Favorite Aluminum Fabricator in Florida?

Go to the places that sell industrial gases and Miller welders. They know all the people who have inverter welders, and weld a lot of aluminum because they buy a lot of argon.
Go to welding tips and tricks and look at every video Jody made on aluminum.
Then before you hire someone, you will know if they are good or not.
Lastly, good TIG welders are in demand so be willing to pay.
You get what you pay for.
You are lucky. I have to feed the manatee crew pizza and pick up the beer cans.
Happy trails.
