My car exhaust the whole thing fell out at the back of my car. Took it Into the mechanics and he said I cracked the manifold

It would cost over £300 to replace and as well as Labour

Anyways in the end he welded the cracked manifold and he showed my exhaust that fell out at the back of car was now in his bin and he replaced it with another once

It cosy me £60.

Fair price?

I used to be a welder and did this very job for a customer on his merc.
Yes a very good price if the weld held.
We never managed to get to weld to stay on even though we warmed up the manifold.
Tried all kinds of methods in welding.
Contacted M/B who told us the manifold was cast out of several metals which might explain why the weld did'nt stick on.

He charged me £70 and upon paying he took £10 off.

Don't know if he was just in a great mood either way I'll be giving him work
