    That just goes to show how cultures are so very different. I may tack something with a mig without a hood on but never weld with a stick that way. I never wear sandals either, not for any reason let along throwing sparks.

      I remember watching an Iraqi climb under his dump truck while changing a tire, the wheel lug nuts were removed and the truck was only supported by a bottle jack!

            If that arabic graffiti wasn't there, and his beard were a little bushier, it could be any hillbilly garage in West Virginia.

              Just me complaining about the pic size again. 800 x 600 is all that fits on a screen, bigger just makes me scroll to see all of it.

                  Reminds me of the time a guy at work had an LP tank from a fork lift that the valve was leaking on and he couldn't get it off... someone caught him with a torch on the valve trying to heat it up
