Welding help wanted near Horsham

Hi Guys,

Not locost related, but looking to get some metal bars welded together as a fish tank stand.
Doesn't need to be very tidy, just wondering if anyone localish might be able to help me for beer tokens as i don't have a welder?

I've got all the metal pre-cut, it will end up looking something like this:



Thanks in advance,
ANdy

Does it have to be metal?

You could make something that does the same job from wood.

It will end up being clad, reason for metal is that I want the front face to have no bracing, at the moment my wooden one has a brace right in the middle and flexes quite a bit. Iíve actually taken it to my local welder now, thanks anyway!

Fair do's - if you've already got the metal and found a welder then seems it's sorted.

One question, once that fish tank's full of water it'll weigh a bit. Will it be steady enough on the frame?

Sorry but I had to smile.

You get your welding done at a garden centre ?

Made me chuckle too

Our local Hilliers does OK for plants, but I've never seen a welder there!
