    • My too true contribution...

      When you have built your home shop and actually have a lounge and bed in it for those projects that you work on all day and night and don't want to leave and mess up your train of thought,

      When you were buildin the home shop you kept the welder inside the house by your chair and took it to where the garage is going to be and welded the frame for the shop.

        • great thread . heres a couple from my personal experience.....

          YMBAWI.........

          you drag your wife out to the garage as fire watch, while youre welding next to the fuel cel in your race car, and you have to send her back into the house because she keeps putting out all the "small" fires.


          your neighbor knocks on your door after midnight because he saw "weird blue lights coming from under the garage doors".

          • ..you point out to your mom how pretty or ugly the welds are on the bracket that holds up the credit card thing at the checkout line, or on the truck next to you in traffic

            ..the smell of argon and scorched clothing are nostalgic

            ..if you've ever smelled burnt flesh when you get in the shower because the water hits a burn you didn't realize you'd got when your sleeve was gapped open

              • You do a visual inspection of the welds at D-i-c-k's (has anyone else seen all the welded stuff in this store?!) Sporting Goods and point out all discontinuities you can find to your wife...and she gives "the look" followed by an eye roll every time...

                • this actually happened today

                  your eyes are so bad from all those years of welding that you cant figure out why your weld gets worst each time you put the wire brush to it, it wasnt wire, yard sale plastic (small brush)

                      "If your girlfriend tells you to stop picking your noise and showing her the black crap you find!!"

                      You try to use that black crap as filler metal.

                      You refer to your O/A rig as the blue tip wrench.

                      When your boss tells you to take the scrap steel to the recyclers and you dig through it for anything "usable" first.

                      When the "usable" pile is bigger than the one going to the recycler.

                      Working for a brick/block mason and you have almost as many pallettes of "usable" scrap as you do brick and block.

                      When your workmates look at your steelies and tell you it's time to buy new ones and they aren't even broken in.

                      When you drop everything just to weld up a broken set of cheap brick tongs.

                      • when you realize that magnet induced arc blow is also descriptive of how you feel when it happens.

                        • When you Forget your ground clamp all the time. Or forget to turn on your gas every single time you strike your first arc for the day..

                          When you set the gun down on your mig welder, walk away, comeback later and theres wire EVERYWHERE!!! And ya try to clean it up before anyone sees.

                          Oh Wait? wrong thread..

                          • you have to go to the eye Dr. because that microscopic metal flake won't come out and your eye swells shut. The Dr. removes the flake and tells you to come back next week to have the rest of the rust removed.

                            • You start a 100% wood project and end up needing to weld something to complete it.
