I kind of hate to give any business that provides friendly helpful service a bad rating but you have to beware of Hercules. I think some of the fabricators there do good work. I walked around a lot and looked at their projects and they appeared to be good quality. Unfortunately, my guy turned out to be the scruffy old guy who you often find chain-smoking behind the desk. He had a lot of good stories about how rough he had it in Vietnam, but as a welder, his good days were well behind him.

Our project involved welding a few parts on a couple of wrought iron yard furniture pieces so we could adapt them to an inside the house use. We gave him a detailed description and drawing of what we wanted, but when we came back, we found that he had gotten our pieces upside down. There was no charge for cutting off the welds and redoing it correctly; our pictures were quite clear. But when we got the pieces back, the welds were so sloppy, and not cleaned up, that I had to spend several hours with files making them usable.

My recommendation is that, if you go there, you should meet your welder and the manager, a real nice guy, and make sure you all agree about what is to be done and how clean the project is going to be at delivery.
