Default anyone in North County San Diego with a spot welder?

Ive reached a point in my project and I need to set the rails in place. I just got the barrel pressed back into the trunion and need to complete the rifle by installing the rails. Unfortunately I only have a MIG welder and already ruined one pair of rails by attempting to tack it in place (the nozzle on the mig welder wont allow me to reach the areas I want to weld). It would be greatly appreciated if someone who had a spot welder could help me out. I would be more than happy to work something out, maybe some brews for the help. thanks to all

Where are you trying to weld? Inside the receiver?

yeah, I was trying to avoid putting holes in the receiver and welding from the outside, but if I cant get anyone to help with the spot welder I think I will have to go down that road

Well I need to get a spot welder but right now I tig weld from the outside through 1/8" hole I drill in the receiver.
Once the welds are ground down with a die grinder you can't tell it was welded. And the strength is very high.
