My driveshaft bearing has spun, I am trying to find a shop in the area here to weld it back up and make the shaft right but have so far struck out. Anyone have any suggestions for who to reach out to?

Commonly, companies who repair industrial electric motors often do spray welding. The armature in large industrial electric motors are very expensive so when a ball bearing fails, locks up, and spins on shaft, it's cheaper to weld and repair instead of replace.
If you can't find anyone in your area, I know Electric Motor Repair does it. 612-588-4693.
