Tom Oakley MetalWorks is a division of Tom Oakley Maintenance & Repair Services that specializes in TIG welding, MIG welding, and arc welding for stainless steel, aluminum, and carbon steel products.

Many people throw away their metal products when they break. But why get rid of it, when it is much cheaper to hire a professional welder to fuse the item back together instead of replacing it?

A benefit of using Tom Oakley MetalWorks is that we can do welding onsite at our shop or offsite by coming to you with our mobile welding unit. Mobile welding is important in the mountains of East Tennessee and especially Sevier County since it can be difficult to maneuver large metal items around backroads. Our mobile welding unit can come to you and is equipped to handle almost any terrain.

While “fixing things” is what we are known for, another main service provided by Tom Oakley MetalWorks is our ability to fabricate welded assemblies with multiple parts. We can also design and build custom weld fixtures.
