welder needed
« on: February 12, 2014, 10:23:05 PM »
a friend recently agreed to let me use one of his baskets to put in my yard to practice. the feet are broken  off the center pole. i need someone  with a welder or access to a welder who could fix it for a bare minimum of cost or free. any  help would be appreciated.

Its an old lightning basket with their standard circular base. It has 3 supports running from the center to the outer ring. 2 of the supports are broken where it meets the outer ring. Looks like I had snapped the old welds actually. Probably just needs a couple of easy spot welds to reattach those to the outer ring.

Is it a DB5 with the removable base? If so, I have a base for it.

Could you just put a pole in the ground and slide it over?

That's what it is Kevin. What are you wanting for it?

That would work too eric, but trying to keep it portable so I can let my bud get some practice in.

He needs it! ;D
