    Are you referring to that Chopper show on TV? Sometimes they don't even use a helmet when using their tig, what a good message to send out to some folks who think that "Hey they don't use one at the chopper shop on TV, why should I".

    At the beginning of each show that Norm Abrams has for woodworking, he emphasis's safety such as eyes, hearing and impact. This testosterone heavy chopper show should really do the same, but then they won't be coooooooool!

    never really thought of that...

    That said: I hereby authorize anyone that has access to the pictures and write-up to use them at their discretion in the proper context of welding safety. You may use the information free of charge.

    Thumbs up safty first

    speaking of safety clothing.
    i have been using one of the leather sleeved cotton shirt/jackets for about 6 years not (fist pic).
    i recently got one of millers pig skin top and sleeve with cotton bottom 1/2.(pic 3) added a pig skin bib( pic 3) to it so its all black in the front.
    the difference is unreal. the pig skin is so much more comfortable.
    i highly recommend it. the sleeves bend nice and the cuff is small enough to allow the gloves cuff to go over it easily.
    makes it much nicer to weld in and makes me want to put it on. if ya get a chance, get one.
    i'm a firm believer in the fact that safety gear is more readily used if it fits well and dose not obstruct your work. this jacket fits that bill. get one and you will use it.

    James you bring up a solid point, I also saw where you live...

    Neighbor stopped the other day and rolled down the window on the car. I walked down to the car and they asked. Don, I see you out here in the shop everyday and you are half naked (jean shorts and t-shirt unless I am welding) don't you realize it the middle of winter and 55 degrees outside today. I said it may be to you out there but in my garage it is over 80 degrees as the sun shines straight in.

    Today is Feb 28 and I just got off the fone with someone in Penn and they asked me what is the temp there in Scottsdale AZ. I said its a bit cooler today, it only 81, it was 84 yesterday.

    We had over 100 days last year with temps over 100 and 30+ days temps over 110.

    You can't weld real long I will tell you that.

    Thumbs up

    SSJ: Thanks for your service!

    not only does it look good but there in no porosity, undercutting and I have excellent penetration.
    I thought it looked like a **** good weld.

    5 megapixels in a freakin' cell phone; sheesh. I paid $800 for my Nikon 3.3 MP, about 2004. I'd still be using it if I hadn't killed it in a motorcycle accident (It was in a double-walled, fiberglass saddlebag )
