Default Decent Welders in Malton/Pickering Area

I currently have my Morris Oxford Traveller being recommisioned up in Yorkshire at the moment. Mechanically the job is all but complete & she's now waiting for the sills & front outriggers to be replaced.
Steve Turner, Chairman & chief engineer of the owners club who has been doing the work had to give up welding on his doctors advice & now normally has it done by a friend of his who is very adept at the work but is currently undertaking a new venture with a pub & has no time for the welding work Steve has lined up for him, three cars with mine second in the queue after a Riley Kestrel. He's having trouble finding a suitable firm up there apparently, the exception being Malton Coachworks, the problem being the £70 ph labour charge which is a factor that Steve, being a good Yorkshireman finds a tad excessive & l can't say l blame him.
I'd rather get the job done while Steve has the car so if anyone in the area knows of a firm in the general Yorkshire area that they can recommend to carry out the work then can you let me know & l can give him the details so he can check them out. Thanks very much.

£70 per hour sounds very reasonable if they have a decent standard of welding. People who can weld to a very high standard often charge a lot more than that!

I can get extremely good welding done for £40 ph by the guy doing the work on my P6's at the moment but it means transportation costs too & he is also very busy. I will do this if necessary but for the moment we'll try & find another welding concern in Yorkshire where the Oxford is now.
