  • You might be a weldor if

    your wife says lets put a lil spark back in to our love life and you clamp your ground to her toe and your stinger to her ear and fire up the ole engine driven welder and then wonder if you have plenty of gas in it.

             read this in one sitting, and your wife thinks it is a waste of time.
             go to strike an arc and your cell phone vibrates at the same time.
             spend a few hours to post something new on this forum.

                        the oven in your garage to keep rod dry cost as much as the oven in the house your wife cooks with. placed right next to the refer full of beer and junk food like frozen twinkies and frozen cup cakes. Double duty for the frozen cup cakes, using them on burns while they are frozen, then eat them after they warm up.
