I like this guy, can we steal him?

General welding questions that dont fit in TIG, MIG, Stick, or Certification etc.

Ironically I was reading this post and thinking about why my arm was raw feeling. Then I remembered all those scratches came from 8 am when I wedged my arm in to clean out a hole in a wall.
I have more questions than answers

It's not actually a daily thing, but anymore I don't even notice the small stuff until someone asks me why I'm bleeding. I should point out that with the medication I'm on a papercut can look serious to the untrained eye...

That's one of the things I've never understood-how can I cut myself and notice for over an hour? Doesn't make any sense. :lol:


Your mind is focused on the task, and you're so accustomed to minor pains, one overrides the other.

That's all I can figure. Until you get in the acetone... THEN the day's adventures become "painfully" clear... :shock:

Acetone? Oh yeah..... The stuff I call "Liquid Cut Finder"! :mrgreen:

Insert witty, sarcastic, or philosophical remark here.

I am sitting here reading this , and both of my hands got bloody today, broke a tap handle, and busted my knuckles, then the other hand slid across the broken part, and I almost pissed down my leg when I picked up and moved a soaked with Acetone towel....

You all must use a ton of acetone or something. It's like all of you have a ton of experience with the "cut finder" I have never had this issue. I usually find my cuts by getting some diesel, gas, oil, dirt, gravel, or my favorite grease- the dirt and grease darken everything except the cut-the cut is very vibrant and easily shown.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything.

I worked with mitered and lots of cut angles of aluminum extrusions for a long time and those things will just unzip you and you'd never even know it. Those weird razor like ones that don't bleed for a little bit, then dripdripdrip...

It wasn't odd at all to hear it called out in the shop- "Who's bleeding?".

If you cut up hot chillis, like harbineros or similar, wash your hands BEFORE going to the toilet. (Or putting your fingers into someplace important). A funny story until it happens to you.

Happened to me and the wife at the same time. :lol:


Last time she'll ever fall for that one :(

Brake and carb cleaner finds them too. Nothing is more of a nuisance than a metal sliver you don't know you have until you touch another piece of metal or put on gloves....then you can't get the damned thing out.
