    Default Leathers

    I went thru my shop and collected my leathers in to one pile. I have three aprons, but one goes with my blacksmithing, different things in the pockets mainly. I have an upper jacket, a full jacket, sleeves, gauntlets, good gloves and not so good gloves.

    I have the heavy cotton welders shirt, and then several buckets, fixed shade lenses and autoshade, as well as two or three pairs of goggles. Is there any type or needed style that I have mentioned that I should have? I stick weld, plasma cut, MIG weld and TIG weld.

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    The leather apron while using a wire wheel is a good idea. Guess I never think to put it on and then I'm picking wires out.

    Exactly how hot are you in your leathers?

    What do you guys use for arm and body protection while welding?

    This afternoon it will be 90 or more, so I won't welding if I need to wear leathers until the sun goes down. Even then it will be too hot, but bearable.

    I wear leathers and the heavy cotton shirt, so I won't get burned or worse get RF burns from the electric welders.
