I've heard of this being done before, It's a common backyard approach.

Welding of leaf springs can't be that hard. My mate was out in central aus when one of the ones on his caravan snapped. A travelling buddy (admittedly a fitter and turner by trade but not a welder) welded a small piece of leaf on top of where it snapped and the welded the crack itself and that thing lasted for some ridiculous number of k's over rough corrugated roads until they got to perth.
