Recommend a mobile welder?

9 posts in this topic

The toungue on our perm shack, a converted camper, partially broke when separating it from the ice, rendering the shack not roadworthy...

pic of damage

Looking for a mobile welder who might consider fixing it so it can be pulled 100 miles home from Mille Lacs. It is currently under watch on the ice at a private access, and would need to be fixed on the ice.

Can anyone recommend someone reasonable and reliable in the area that we could work with via phone to get an emergency fix? If you don't want to post contact info here, email me at jfederline at yahoo (Contact Us Please).

Thanks!

Haven't been able to get ahold of him yet, giz. One of his workers gave us the name of a guy in Milaca, but no return call yet.

I fixed the pic link - thanks crestliner16.

Thanks for the lead on Al's, farmfishing, I wonder what trip charge would be from Aitkin?

Has anyone used Thiele Welding in Isle? I see them listed on Fishermans Wharf website.

I have used Thiele in Isle when I broke my hitch off at Brandts. Unfortunately, I have an aluminum frame and he came out to Brandt's, loaded it on a flatbead trailer, took it to his shop, welded it, etc. all for under $300, which I thought was cheap (he had me over the barrell so he could have charged me whatever he wanted)plus he did this after 5 p.m. I would recommend him.

I highly recommend Thiel also. I went in there to ask about some steel to mount the fish house to the runners and he immediately dropped what he was doing and had what I needed in 15 minutes. They are located a couple miles south of Isle.

Sorry for the off topic ? but I am working on a camper conversion much like your. I was wondering if you could post some pics of the interior and what you use for hole sleeves. You could also e-mail me at perrym01@yahoo.com if you don't want to post. Thanks and sorry to Hijack the post!

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
