Ok here is the problem, I have a friend that needs to have a broken piece on a cast iron treadle for a vintage sewing machine welded up. I know that it is an O/T item but its very valuable and needs to be done right, and I would feel better knowing a HAMBer did the work because it will be done right. I would do it myself but it is several thousand miles from me and we dont want the chance of it being broken during the shipping process for me to fix it. The young lady is in the Boston area and if anyone can fix it and make it look good then I need to talk to you. This is a German piece (Pfaff) from the teens or tweenties and it is in a spot that has a lot of meat to work with. Ill include a photo of it so you guys can see what your working with. And if you can be easy on the finish around the welded area it would be great.
