Welding

Recommended Posts

vguy

I have a en elipitcle bike which was perfect, a more expensive good one and it just broke. i use it alot so ...fair enough.The crank ...or part my foots weight is on all the time has broken at the join

Replacing it would be very difficult , and take weeks to order it in .

I think it could be fixed easily with a welder but i cant get it apart , so i would need a welder to come and fix it here.

anyone know where i can find a welder ?  I live in fuente  by Robinsons

thanks alot !

Ask the security guard where you live if he knows a good welder who could do it for you. Security guards are the go-to people for information like that.

the problem with going for a typical welder that can be rounded up word of mouth is you will probably get someone with a crude stick welding machine.   for the high-stress part you are describing you will want to at least get it mig welded if not tig welded.   a mobile welder with that equipment could be rounded up but you need to specify it and look around.

Are you sure you want it welded on the machine?  Are there any electronics on it?  You said it was an expensive one so probably yes.  You might be better off look for a bicycle repair shop to have a guy come take the crank off and he can probably take it to one of the many machine shops and bring it back to put back on.

Arent the joint, bronzed ?

I assume that would need to be removed before you can weld it
