    I bet you said in a real calm voice, oh darn

    Never did that but I was sitting at my table, chipping slag and a piece fell in my lap, didn't know it until something felt awfully hot.

    I was doing some piddling the other day at home with my Maxstar had just finished a short bead with some 3/32 7018 had the work clamp in one hand and layed the electrode end up on my vise the hot end of the rod swung down and got my wrist and the work clamp at the same time ... I feel your pain.....I have never gotten the hot wire treatment, but have run cold wire into my finger tips many times....
