Welding on Disk Tabs

I know, I've seen the other threads about it. I have everything ready to go disk brakes, tubeless wheels, fox fork, juicy 5's... all I need is a disk tab welded to the back. There is enough clearance for the rotor.

So my question is, is there anyone in the State College, PA area? Please, please. If not, where should I try to go to get one welded on?

Thank you

Cro-moly, it's a mid 90's Fisher Tassajara. Mid level, I know, but hey, it's a steel frame. And with nice components it will be great.

There will likely be a bit more then just the disk tabs needed. At the least a bracing tube that ties in the seat stay with the chain stay. The frame wasn't designed with the forces that a disk produces in mind. Also carefully positioning of the tabs will be needed to insure rub free adjustment of the brake. There's much more involved that adding rim brake bosses. Andy.
