I had a small welding job and Mel's has been around forever in Vista so I took it there. I was told it would be two weeks before they could get to it. After three weeks I checked and they still hadn't started it but I was promised it would be done by the end of the week. Friday came which was almost a month after dropping it off. They still hadn't started it. I took the item back and I am now looking elsewhere. If you have a small job do not go to Mel's they apparently don't have the time. I would have appreciated it if they had just refused the job rather than take it then not do it. No integrity in my opinion. Beware!

Mel and his son of Mel's Welding South have been wonderful supporters and sponsors of Troop 799 and Explorer Post 3141. For the Troop they provided over 40 metal flag stands for the 50 State Flag project and the work was done by an Eagle Scout hired by Mel's. For the Explorer Post Mel's donated a 1 inch diameter iron rod for the Trebuchet axle, which is the "heart" of the Trebuchet.

They are local, professional and experienced for any trailer, welding or other related jobs. One of our Assistant Scoutmasters had his utility trailer fixed and passed CHP inspection, which saved his business.

Thanks to Mel and his team for their continued support.
Troop 799 and STEM Explorer Post 3141 of Vista CA.
