    Sure hope you are making a funny..

    Sleeveless??...they don't make a sunblock strong enough to protect from a day of welding... let alone a lifetime...

    Knew a couple of guys that died from UV induced Melanoma....

    not a good way to go...

    Shorts, tennis shoes with no socks, no gloves, and just be careful.


    When I need to weld or cut, I'm never dressed for it.

    No the sunblock is not strong enough but I build trailers and weld with a regency 250. It cuts back on the fried skin and sharp pain every time you move. My work wear is sufficient for production welding. It would be different if it were flux core.

    What you may not realize is that the ULTRAVIOLET damage is cumulative and that the advertised SPF numbers are mostly BUNK...

    Here is a thread that might be educational if you read the whole thing..

    Fluxcore or Gas MIG... the UV is still there Don't kid yourself..

    Touché good sir but alas u am still a poor family man trying to do the blue collar and not die in the process I could not afford proper protection. My children eat before I do. Sacrifices are made to ensure my family's safety all else is second including my own.

    Not trying to duel with you...

    just hoping that you protect yourself enough to live long enough to see your grandkids...

    little stuff like long sleeves and other body coverage... will help a bunch..

    I do not think that Bob was kidding (AAMETALMASTER)...

    No i wasn't. And i was a guy on this very forum saying tee shirts and no hood for me because it was only tacking. Then my nose started growing a lump on the left side. I always turn my head to the right when tacking. So my face and nose was taking a beating for the last 38 years. The DR said he was going to remove the skin from my nose and under my left eye and dig around then find donor skin to rebuild my face. That was enough to scare me. He removed lots of skin from my nose and i should be OK. I asked what it was from and he said UV for sure. Hey if you need a welding jacket send me a message with your address and i will fix you up. Just my thoughts...Bob
