Was moving my grill and one of the wheel brakes was on, so it popped one of the welds on the bracket that is/was welded to the bottom of the grill. Wondering if anybody knows of a welder that would come out and weld it back on? Might just drill through them both and bolt it back on as another option if welding isn't feasible... Thanks in advance...

I'm betting it would be cost prohibitive to have a welder come to you for such a small job. If you can load it up, you could take it it to a local welding shop or muffler shop and have it done.

If it can be done, drilling it out and bolting it together is probably the route I would take.

Agreed that it's probably not feasible unless you know the person and they are doing it for practically nothing. I'd just bolt it together if I didn't have a welder available to me.

Yeah, thought about the muffler shops that "weld kid's toys for free" and they'd probably weld my adult toy, but all we have are Hondas, so can't load it up and take it to them. Figured it was worth asking, never know, thx... :( Bolting it would be the easiest way to go, so gotta get a drill bit and bolt tomorrow, been grilling weather for a while now!

Good luck trying to weld the current thin gage metal on todays grills. Try bolting it together.
