    Looking for someone to help me spot-weld the rails into my receiver. They're already heat-treated so that doesn't need to be taken care of. The closer to Tacoma, the better but I'm willing to drive to anywhere between Portland and Bellingham.

    I don't spot weld them. I plug weld with a TIG welder. After its all said and done they look just like spot welds though. I'm an hour from tacoma too.

    I can help ya. I have a spot welder with the AKbuilder arm just for that purpose. I live in Puyallup. I have spot welded at least 2 dozen sets of rails. Send me a PM if you want to hook up.
