        • ...if you know that mid weld, you are on fire and still finish the rod
          ...if you feel a molten slag ball fall down and land on your arm/leg/neck and you shimmy around trying to get it off without breaking the arc

            • carbon rods

              I have used carbon rods to fill worn out hitch pin holes. Put the carbon rod in the hole and weld around till the hole is full to your standards and pull the rod out and you have a perfectly round hole you dont have to try and drill

                  YMBAW if you think tungsten is an acceptable toothpick

                  When others say they are a welder you roll your eyes and wonder if they can actually weld

                  You buy a cheap Lincoln so you can make enough to buy the dream miller

                  You always carry at least one flashlight at all times

                  You think 308L tig wire makes nice jewelry

                  You got a tig torch tattooed on your hand

                  You discover nomex/ Kevlar laces and buy the whole box cuz they might last a little longer

                  Your sunglasses are cutting glasses

                  You think every boiler tube should have been welded by you

                  • Rather than set up your torch you use 6010 to cut almost everything

                    • 3 years and going strong!

                      in the same sentence where to find a church or some crack cocaine ...... Lol true story .
                      ^^
                      That was funny stuff.

                      THe one about the asking the fire watch if somethings on fire and its you!



                      YMBAWI you have a whole cabinet of consumables from different jobs. (That ones are little secret though...)

                      -- you can read a whole sign of words on a window while standing behind it!

                      -- you find this thread after 3 years and reread most of it again. This is great!

                      • Only got to page 32, but gotta add mine........
                        YMBAWI: your company installs a new time clock that is fingerprint operated, and you have to use a pin pad instead because it won't read your prints
                        YMBAWI: your changing your 1 yo daughters diaper and you wonder if her diaper rash cream will soothe the flash burn on your arm (between the bottom of your shirt sleeve and top of glove, inside left arm)
                        YMBAWI: the door bell rings at 3:22am, because your buddies were rock crawlin and broke the jeep again and need you to weld it back together so they can get to work in the morning, or you have to put the TB275 and some 6011 in the truck to go fix the jeep broke on the rock/in the mud
                        YMBAWI: your wife buys a beautiful brand new pair of red wing boots, but you have her take them back because they have laces, (and we all know laces get expensive)


                        All true!

                        P.S. so many of the posts are true lol.

                        • Ymbawi your in jail and all you can do is look at the welds and think they all coulda been done better or what you can use to break out overlooking the concrete.

                            Sounds like you have a personal experience with this.

                            • You might be a welder if your daughter hugs you and tells you that you smell like metal.

                                You clean stainless with acetone wearing your welding gloves and go to tack your parts together and spontaneously start your whole hand on fire... Not once but three times.
