    I remember when i learned how to weld 6010 overhead... Looked like i had chicken pox on both arms for a week...

    Had a guy on the last job who was welding (and should not be welding) get a rod stuck.. Rod get so cherry it melts in half.. Then in his fit of furry he somehow manages to stick the hot rod through his thumb.. With glove on, in the bottom out the top...

    Cutting with a torch, outside, in the summer, wearing shorts and work boots. Was squatted down and a piece of molten metal went down the back of my boot. Thats why you shouldnt wear shorts I still do sometimes, depending on what I'm doing, but stay outta the way better. The worst I have done was cut my left hand with a grinder, 10 stitches later, thumb is still numb. I ALWAYS wear gloves grinding now.

    Default Flash Burns and splatter

    You better get out of welding if you think this sh** t doesn't happen ........ your gonna get it constantly......... matter of fact in this business , the tops of your angles will be permenaly scared with short arc spares , sparks in your ear and you'll hear it sizzle, sparks on you head and big clumps of hair coming out, dream on if ya think welding is cool ... you'll be flashed in the eyes walking past a welder with your head turned because the rays will be bouncing off the walls in the opposite direction ......... you get it bad one day .you won't sleep that night then you'll be OK.........just try to avoid it...close your eyes ........... I put a 100 Ft. ladder in an auditorium for the play Phantom of the opera in the city ....... I was 100 in the air holding 50 lbs. of welding cable swinging the lead around accidently hitting the steel..... FLASHED LIKE NO TOMORROW BUT HOLDING ON FOR DEAR LIFE WAS MORE IMPORTANT.......... COULDN'T SLEEP 4 TWO DAYS.........lol but pocketsed 2 grand.......

    Default grinders the 9inch jobs

    Our instructor was telling us about the dangers of a grinder. Do not use the trigger lock button on them they are extremly dangerous. He tols us one of his students was using on of the grinders and it caught his shirt up it the grinding whell tore the shirt to threads pulled it into his waist and cut about a inch deep gash around his waist almost disembowled him. because the trigger lock was on. From that day since we remove the trigger lock.
