    Default more than just hobby

    You might be a welder if you recieve holiday greeting cards from the steel supplier and welding is just one of your hobbies,not your real job. Thats beside all the counter people knowing your name.

    you are a true welder.
    when the patterns on your arms and back that were made by the blobs of hot spatter and metal that got past the leather start to resemble tatoos without the colour.

    when you reach my age and the grey hair is more like sun bleached white and happens to starts where your helmet finishes.

    when you buy a toy welding set for your childs first birthday ( wife was not happy) then a toy grinder for there second. ( then the wife reminds you there a girl) so what!

    when the wife realises the 125cc tot-rod you are building is for your sons second birthday ( she is NOT happy)

    Smile YMBAW if...........

    YMBAW if every time you see a 220 volt outlet ANYWHERE, you wind up looking to see how many amps and then wonder if it will carry a welder!

    Makes me think about how ****ed many styles of 220 plugs there are....gotta be a hundred!

    Never pick a fight with an old guy. Old guys are too smart to fight and get hurt. They'll just kill you and get it over with.

    OK, I'll contribute a little, I'm a heavy duty diesel tech that's welds too (just to explain a bit, LOL).

    YMBAWI..

    ...If something comes in the shop broken and the boss comes in asking "where's the genius"

    ...If you get a woody when something comes in broken

    ...If you've ever finished someones metal project because you watched them try to weld it and couldn't stand to let them finish, LOL

    Smile Ymbawi

    ....you pronounce YMBAWI like it's spelled (Yum-Bouwy).

    ....you graduated from "Put it in the scrap bin" to "Save it, put it on the shelf."

    ....you tack stuff up just shutting your eyes.

    ....you wonder why "woody" is used to describe one on a welder.

    I didn't mean to be sarcastic. I was makin' a joke. Usually the wood burners are teasing the metal guys and vice-versa. Sorry if it came out wrong.
