the MIG will fry you up just nice with heaps of ampsOriginally Posted by sjmiller
wish I had a dollar for every time I've had rayburn and spatter burns over the last 27 yrs I wouldn't have to weld any more
nothing worse than being up under the axles of a semi trailer doing a weld and getting burned no were to go in a hurry just have grit your teeth and bear it .

You really should work as safe as you can. The green sleeves work good in the summer with a tee shirt. Can't wear the carharts when its 100 degrees outside or when your working in the sun. Winter is great welding weather. Had a piece of molting metal fell down the back of my boot. [wearing shorts] That hurt. If I'm going to be completely under something I'll put on coveralls but for bench top projects, I try keep my legs out of the way. Usually wear gloves, especially for a lengthy projects. I do alot of equipment repair so sometimes the welds are short then something has to be taken apart or put back together. Always wear glasses, or face shield. A hand can be sewed up but the eyes can't take much.
