did you catch your shirt on fire? You haven't lived until you've had your clothing catch on fire when you Mig weld. I'm tellin' ya....you need to try it.

i've been there. thought i could get away with tacking a bunch of sheetmetal patches in place without my helmet. no one told me that the arc will still burn the shit out of your eyes even if you're not looking at it. spent 2 days with patches & ointment covering my eyes, worst pain i've ever felt in my life. ugh!! lol

The welding sunburn is nothing, just wait until you burn the shit out of your feet from sparks and shit going in your shoes!! Welding rules, getting burned is just part of the job!!

Overhead welding laying on my side in a t-shirt... Nice blob of molten metal hits the ground and sizzles right under my arm pit. I couldn't get up off the ground quick enough lol Left a nice crater in the skin.

Years ago a guy at work had to TIG weld a large section. It was really hot and he just wore a t shirt
Hours later, he took off his t shirt(white) and his chest was red, except where the lettering was on his shirt
It said "Jamaica No Problem" in white on his chest
