  • Leathers

    I went thru my shop and collected my leathers in to one pile. I have three aprons, but one goes with my blacksmithing, different things in the pockets mainly. I have an upper jacket, a full jacket, sleeves, gauntlets, good gloves and not so good gloves.

    I have the heavy cotton welders shirt, and then several buckets, fixed shade lenses and autoshade, as well as two or three pairs of goggles. Is there any type or needed style that I have mentioned that I should have? I stick weld, plasma cut, MIG weld and TIG weld.

          The leather apron while using a wire wheel is a good idea. Guess I never think to put it on and then I'm picking wires out.

                What do you guys use for arm and body protection while welding?

                    This afternoon it will be 90 or more, so I won't welding if I need to wear leathers until the sun goes down. Even then it will be too hot, but bearable.

                    I wear leathers and the heavy cotton shirt, so I won't get burned or worse get RF burns from the electric welders.

                      generaly just a shirt and gloves, but if im doing inverted or over head work i go with my welding jacket with the metal sleves. the leather was first gotten for plasma cutting and then later when i got whire wheels it and a full face shield were a every time no exceptions thing.

                        Pigskin Baby

                        I would try pigskin, it is light weight, abrasion resistant and much cooler than leather.

                            Fun4Now, it must be warm under there, but that is the way I dress up to weld. My sleeves are pigskin, they work o.k.

                              naa NY a few months ago just as spring was getting started, so the jacket was a good thing. but i still would have ben in it if it had not been cool out. 2 wire cup brushes and 2 flap disks and 2 welders all going under 1 car at the same time. it was a good thing.
