ITs gross, I am lucky to work in an air conditioned building.
Had to weld a bunch of aluminum at one of our buildings with no A/C, in the summer..... I was drenched in sweat.
You are lucky to have air...nothing like sweating like a pig and having damp gloves and getting zapped when you hit the pedal. There has got to be a better way to make a living
but I still love what I do.
Haha, I feel you there! Had to do a floor inside a fridge, welding aluminum diamond plate Tigged the whole thing, was sweating since the cold air was off and it just got toastier and toastier, started sweating and getting zapped through my knees
Its funny what we put ourselves through and yet, stick to the bussiness. Something magical about it, hard to put your finger on it.
Like today, handed over a custom made surprise cart to a customer, him being the baker, his boss asked me to make him a cart for his bread slicer as it would shake the table it was on really bad. Made it it all out of stainless, really nice and she tied a bow on it and rolled it over to him today. Love to see the smile on people's face when you solve a problem for them.
That's probably why we are still in the bussiness
Oh, and because welding is badass, that's definetley a plus point.
