Title: T-Top for new boat
Post by: The_Gaffer on October 06, 2013, 13:22:21 CET
I'm searching the market for someone who fabricates (cuts, bends and welds) aluminium piping.  I want to build a custom made T-Top for my new fishing boat.  Any ideas welcome please.

Don't know about aluminium but Petecraft have the facility at their factory on stainless steel (cutting, bending and welding).

@shanook: yes please, would really appreciate. 
@malvizzu: yes i know about petecraft, mario and myself discussed this, as i am ordering the 16 footer petecraft.  However, i would prefer the aluminium ones, as i'm trying to keep the weight down as much as possible. 
@buzumark: thanks tan-numru, ghada ntieh cempilha

Hi Joe try Medway marine at Kordin on 21 667 600 or 99461515 and ask for Freddie. I did my stainless steel railings there and I can say that they did an amazing job! Maybe they do aluminium works too.

I have not as yet found anyone who welds aluminium pipes.  I called the guy in Fgura suggested by Buzumark, but the only cut and bend, they do not weld.  One last attempt is Medway, they do fabricate, but do not weld.  However, a garage above theirs is said to be welding aluminium.  So bext if i give the guys at Medway a visit and check things out

Ir-Remig silencer repair at rabat 99445808 does weld and bend aluminium pipes.

Steve a member of this forum does as well 99895312.

I also know of another guy in mtahleb that does welding on aluminium since that a friend of mine Bertu whom modifies Landrovers, often calls him to weld these modifications.
