    Default I wish the holes would stop

    Hey everyone, long time no talk I have gone through I think 3 pairs of overalls in the past 4 months, no matter how hard I try my pant legs just keep catching on fire I just got a brand spanking new pair of carhartts and guess what happened gouging a backing strip off my plate today.... ya you guessed it a new hole. I know that I cant really stop the holes from burning through but its just very annoying going out for new overalls every few months. Other then that school couldn't possibly be going any smoother I just my first block release February 4th so that should keep my busy.
    Thanks for reading I hope my post helped

    Wear shorts for awhile...... That'll teach you to keep your legs outta the way

    Same with mechanics, some get nasty and some don't. its how you work

    good luck with school



    ps: joking about the shorts of course!!

    Cool

    I burned a nice hole in my new Addis tenny runners a few months back, the shoe is fine but the matching hole in my foot isn't. By the time i got the fire out i was burned pretty good. Welding is hard on clothes don't care what it is the spark will find its way in. I wear shorts and a welding jacket most of the time unless i am crawling around on the floor then i put on some Nomex FR coveralls....Bob

    Rather than go out to a welding shop and buying coveralls, welding jackets, etc, check out your local Salvation Army or Goodwill store, or a similar place. Many of them sell shirts or clothing for a dollar or two that you can use for welding. Saves quite a bit of money in a year.

    when i started plasma cutting a lot i got a pair of the leather foot covers. work good to keep blobs from burning threw the laces and tung of my boots. only gotts get a good sized one inthere wile you start trying to unlace and get a boot off once to look for a better protection. i dont own sneakers but i suspect it would be easyer to get them off but still no fun.

    Get used to the idea of going through a lot of clothes if you make this a career. Getting those holes patched as they happen goes a long way toward stopping the flames. When the fray they start easy. Leathers are ok, but the chaps would kill ya down here (I hardly ever wear mine when I ride the 'ol hawg). It was 80 degrees here a couple of days ago. As for the feet try wearing slip on boots. Redwing boots hold up well for me.
