Maybe not! I know of a welding shop (in my locality... central
California) that will do welding jobs pretty cheaply. I think they
have a minimum job cost of $30, and that's for 1/2 hour. An
experienced welder can do a LOT of welding in 1/2 hour!
A bit of shopping for welders in your area may be worthwhile.
