[DML] Re: Re-skinning a door



Reskinning is not usually needed. Unless it is a deep, sharp crease just about anything can be worked out. Patches can be cut and welded in and you will never see the repair so the edges don't have to be "hidden". The level of skill of the craftsman most times determines the kind of repair. Chris Nickleson is about the best there is so he can do things many other metal workers cannot do. You have to figure out what is the best option for you. It may make economic sense to replace rather than to ship and repair if no one locally can repair it properly. Welds can be ground and polished so you can never see them. I did it all the time when I had a factory and built S/S elevator doors and frames and cabs. It DOES take a master craftsman though! If you need to get in touch with Chris you can probably do it through PJ Grady.
