Need an experienced Ti welder/fabricator

Was hoping someone could help point me in the right direction and in contact with someone who can help me with fixing an exhaust canister end cap.
I'll post up a picture later of what I am trying to fix. Thanks!!

You need to find someone good at tig welding aluminium or copper. (shielding gas of argon or helium)

I would think most major cities would have someone in the area that can do this.

The trick is going to be finding the welding rod the same alloy as the exhaust pieces.

I need someone who can work their Ti magic on this end cap....last piece to my Sato oval puzzle.
Heating and reforming and such.....might not be doable.
Figured if I got in touch with the right expert they would be able to give it a shot.

Sound pretty confident Waldo. I must ask how are you so sure though of course...

I had him weld an engine case. I have seen a few of his other jobs. Give him a call and see what he says.

Well, you and I both know thin-walled Titanium and engine cases are two totally diffferent things, right?
I'll give him a shot for sure, thanks Waldo!!
If he's as good as you say he is and can help me out, I'll send 3 or 4 end caps out to him.
Please everyone, keep throwing contacts at me if you think of someone in this area of expertise.

No, Bob pretty much sat on it for over 2 months and did nothing with it.
