    Default Anyone use the flame resistant Twill shirt from Miller?

    Right now I am using one of the button up Wrangler shirt you can get from TSC, but spatter seems to burn its way through the shirt and leave little burns on my arm. I've heard of shirts that are made from mountain cloth that are made for welding and I was wondering if this shirt was something like that.

    hmm... I have never heard of doing that before. This is my third shirt like this, I always keep them around due to the fact thats so hard to tear my self away from a "good" welding shirt. The 'ol lady just doesn't seem to understand it though

    Your wife didn't throw them away. She packed them up and sent them to me! I have the red belly to prove it!

    Now that's what we need burn proof t-shirts. I think mine get more burn holes from grinding than welding though. I have a friend whose son works for the power company and they have to have all flame proof clothing. The stuff is a little pricey but I figure when the temps cool down I'll try one of the shirts.

    As far as starching the shirts all you need to do is get a can of spray starch and when they're dry hang them on a hanger and spray the snot out of the sleeves with the spray starch, the whole shirt for that matter.

    I think I'll give that a try, Would be way cheaper to do it that way than to send it to the cleaners to starch it, plus I actually can have it back quicker

    You'll also find the dirt doesn't set and stain as badly when it's starched. Easier to get clean. Downside is once you wash it you have to re-treat it though.
