Fair price for welding services

There is a guy the next town over who can weld some fittings on my kegs. He quoted me $10 per inch a reasonable price to pay.

See if he will do it for $10 per fitting if you drill the holes. $20 per fitting isn't a bad deal either but if you want him to drill the holes then expect to pay $30+.

I paid $30 per pot and each one had 3 fittings but I drilled and filed the holes myself.

This is fixed simply by resting it over the boil kettle. The worst one is the shorter lengths. When set up as is in the photos of their manual, they are too short. So, I move the exchanger all the way to the side, yet the small hose leading to the inlet of the pump still crimps closed. It looks like I may need either an elbow at that point, as it is at the bottom of the pump, or a longer hose. Suggestions?
