      I learned one day while tigging that if a hot filler rod slips outta your hands... don't try to catch it. I caught it just fine, however, the hot end burned into my neck about a 1/4" inch... felt deeper than that!

          Burns come and go, I was welding outside in 20 below and had my carhart jacket on over bibs and all. I caught my arm on fire and wasn't even aware of it until my buddy slaps my head.

          Worked with another guy, great welder. He lost his left arm as a kid on the farm and had a operational hook that he strapped around his shoulders to work. Had to grind him off the table once, he was tig welding and feeding with the hook when he touched the filler to the electrode and went to ground.

                I dont know what hurts worse, that or the Dr digging the metal out.

                Human skin burning is the worst smell in the world.

                  I can actually smell the smell and my eyes water when I think about the time that I was getting ready to start a vert. down on some 12ga. galvanized and when I pulled the trigger, it just sort of "popped", and it all landed INSIDE my ear. Oh, trust me, you haven't lived until you've done that.

                    Sounds painful, not sure I want that to happen, I wear hearing aids in both ears, not only would it sizzle and burn, Dr Bob would be peeling plastic and rubber off my ear drum.

                      Ohh, you're all whimps!

                      Try roasting your berries on a piece of red hot strong pipe! O.K., here we go. Now remember this only happened once and if this happened to you, you would understand that this event stands out as one of those moments in life that doesn't require an encore. I was straddling a 8"X7/8" wall section of strong pipe in a position that is perhaps only performed by contortionists. I was pre-heating with my A/O when a piece of wood I was standing on gave way and I had no other route of escape but to pull a western stunt and ride the pipe. Both of my boys found there mark a top of red hot steel. With my 190 pounds of weight ensuring proper contact my crotch went up in flames and chestnuts were roasting on an open fire with medium well on the menu. I had a blistered bag and walked with a lest for 2 weeks.

                      Andy and Rick, I know your on this forum somewhere, so I don't need any more lip from you guys about this at work tomorrow! You had your laughs!

                            I can't tell you how many times I've burned myself in the past: filler and or stick rods in the legs, molten metal in boots, down chest ,into the ear canal, hands all the time. You get to feel and smell it all over again when jumping into hot shower at night. I count myself VERY lucky not to have burned the boys. It hurt me just to read that TacMig

                              Yikes..

                              Looking back on the formentioned event, it really was luck that saved the boys from total loss. I was only 4 feet from the ground and was able to swing myself underside. With the situation at hand, this only took about a 10Th. of a second. The worst element of this injury was the ice treatment. "Chrispy frozen berries". Took 3 days off to comfort the boys and went back to a bunch of guys doing thier level best not to offend the bosses burnt bag. However, with all parts checking out O.K., they showed me the funny side and all in all, I guess it was pretty funny.

                                I had a tig welder who had a habit of putting the torch over his leg while sitting in his chair after finishing a weld and the tungsten burned a hole thru his nut sack. Needless to say he never did that again.
