    • ...If every time you go to take off your ballcap, you try and unclip your hood first, still thinkin you are wearing a hard hat

      ...You can smoke a cigarette under your hood, and still weld a consistent bead (my supervisor)

      ...you start gagging on your dip b/c you dont want to stop welding to spit

      ...you get dirty looks at the bar when you and your buddies are talkin about your rods

      ...you keep the proper angle on your ketchup bottle to run a perfect bead on your hotdog (caught myself doing this the other day, dad thought i was nuts)

      • You don't worry what your house insurance covers, but you check to see if they cover the value of the contents of your garage.

        • YMBAW if... youve ever run through the shop, screaming like a lil girl cause ya caught your hair on fire..... or been handed print and asked to "just make it work, please"

          or get a call from the boss carni guy to weld on a ride so it will pass inspection... do it at a very reduced price so that your daughter can ride for free the next day

              I can burn a cigarette under my hood. I just haven't figured out how to burn one through the resperator that keeps you from getting lung cancer from the weld fumes. Ohh-- I get it, Y.M.B.A.W. if, see above comment.

                That one was awesome! How bout when caulking around the bathtub!

                scott hightower- You know all the steps to the "Spatter in the Workboot Dance."

                I gotta get that on camera one day.

                Coburn Performance- You don't worry what your house insurance covers, but you check to see if they cover the value of the contents of your garage.

                Even though insurance covers your personal assets I somehow know what you mean.


                Here's a few more cuz there so fun!

                You might be a welder if 25 amps doesn't scare you.

                You might be a welder if you have to stop yourself from showing off "all" your burns when someone asks do you get burned a lot.
                You know what I mean.

                    ....Your wife/GF won't buy wire hangers because they always disappear around the time you've run out of filler rod.

                    Not the best one, I can't believe this thread is still rolling. I have been reading it for the last few days and I can't stop laughing. Good work SSS

                    • My girlfriend the other day was asking me if I was losing my hair because of all the bald patches I had.

                      I had to explain to her that I had forgot my welding cap at home and was welding overhead and burned a few hairs.

                            • You're 70 years old, and you never lace up your high-cut work boots, so you can get them off fast, and you still have scars on he tops of your feet.

                              • You Might be a weldor if: You stir your coffee with 3/32 Pure tung since the 1/2 dozen boxes you ordered last time you ordered is about useless in your shop because you just got a new inverter for TIG. It's a good thing green bands are tastleless, huh?
