    Welding Shop recommendations - West Des Moines

    Can anyone recommend a good welding shop in West Des Moines?

    I see there is a place called Village Blacksmith in Valley Junction, but I have never heard anything about them.

    Thanks

    Re: Welding Shop recommendations - West Des Moines

    Our house has an old built-in recessed area for a tube TV. I need to have a couple brackets made to be able to mount a new 60" plasma in front of that opening.

    The brackets aren't complicated, but I want them to be overkill so the TV doesn't go anywhere.

    I have used Simon Welding in Winterset and he does a great job... but was looking to see if someone that was closer was recommended.

    For anyone interested, I gave the Village Blacksmith shop a try in Valley Junction. They did a great job and turned my brackets around in less than 24 hours. Very reasonably priced too.

    Stewo recommended Quality Manufacturing which I agree has done a great job when I have used them in my professional life on some larger projects, I just thought my little bracket fabrication job was too small to bother them with.
