    YMBAWI

    If when purchasin or renting a house, your more interested in the shop size, how many 220 volt welding outlets it has, and if they match the nema configuration of your welders plug...


    To the one that said about having to constantly reset a tripped breaker, ive had to do that once... when I first bought my welder I was gettin the cover screwed in, got a flush mount, and i was pluggin my welder ext cord into it, so afdter the plate was on, I flipped on the 50 amp breaker to it, wasnt thinkin and the plate was not flush, so I tried forcing the plug in, it arced between the points, not only tripped the welder plug, but the breaker for the subpanel... got lucky on that one

    YMBAWI You bend a welding rod in half and put it in a hasp instead of a padlock

    YMBAWI If you come across a door with a hasp and a bent welding rod in it, and respect that its “locked” and you do not open it.

    Talking you might be a welder if

    Theses are all true as I am guilty of all of them, enjoy


    if while welding, the welding inspector sliped away, you sliped a hot dog on your 7018 to heat it up while burning your rod only to find him standing behind you when you lifted your hood

    you ate your dogs chicken jerkey because he ate your lunch.

    if you put a trailer axle and tires and tongue on your just finished moment frame to get it to the job site.

    you might be a welder you think multi process means,
    using 2 12volt batteries to weld a broken axle while off roading.

    using your air arc as an emergency flashlight

    using your favorite cd as a welding lens because you left your hood at the shop.

    you had to use your jenn-air as a rod oven

    if you weld 2 rods end to end to make a weld because your to lazy to get a ladder

    or my favorite ( you should have seen the look on my wifes face)
    you go the the candle shop to get your rod waxed. and you tell her it had to do with underwater welding.

    Unhappy

    You know you are definitely a welder if you can some how notice a rusty old 1997 Ford F250 driving in the opposite direction because it has a brand new Miller "Fire Storm 5000" on the back BUT you can't seem to notice the brand new Dodge dually 1 ton driven by some young punk (with hat on backwards) and carrying only a magnetic sign that says "Don's Chair Repair" that has stopped for a red light 20 feet in front of you!

    Ok, I hate to even admit to this one, but here it goes....

    YMBAWI....you are at the mall with your friend and his wife. The three of you are walking by a section of the common area that is being remodeled. Your friend comments to his wife about the clothing on display at the Victorias Secret store. All the while you are paying attention the the propane conversion kit and running gear on the Trailblazer that the contractors have chained to a structural beam by the walk way. Sad, but true.....SSS

    You are right! There were no injuries except for the bumper of my wife's mini-van, the dust layer on the hitch of the Dodge, and finally the drivers licence of the young proprietor of "Don's Chair Repair" who must not have been able to wait till he got to the bar before for enjoying his version of "Miller Time" - DWI for him!
