Ah... it;s not that bad. That´s my whole summer



Dude if you survive till your 35 you might end up to be one hell of a welder.

Jackets, we don't need no stinking jackets!

No man, I don't do a ton of welding on the farm in the summer. Small repairs, generally smaller fab work, sometimes some big stuff like a safety pull or oil rack. Only safety gear is a passive shade helmet and safety glasses for grinding and cutting.

Thanks though-I'll probably make it past 35 and I hope I'll be a damn good welder(fingers crossed) If I keep up the time I'm putting in I may not be horrible by the time I reach 25. And then maybe I'll be decent by the age of 50 and maybe as good as guys like Jody by the time I'm 90
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything.

You may want to re-think the safety gear and it's consequences. So many stories out there about people who were tougher than the UV rays or fumes from this or that. Then one day they are very sick or debilitated and write stories about if they had to do it over again. Just looking out for you and the rest of the noobs. ;)

Yes, I am aware that there are risks, 90%-95% of welding is done with proper safety gear. Helmet, gloves, crappy jacket(BSX I don't reccomend and yes I bought it before the whole tig finger deal), safety glasses. The only time I've really had problems was one day with fumes when I was wire brushing some extremely rusty tubing-the next day I was bed ridden and couldn't hardly breathe. Lesson learned-wear a respirator- I should have known after the years on the farm cleaning grain bins(don't do it-not a lot of fun-especially soybeans they are the worst smelling when it is rotten)

Today I was doing a lot of self-shielded flux core work. Overhead, vertical, flat, cast iron to steel,nasty steel, etc. And I wore my helmet with the leather bib, gloves, jacket, respirator, safety glasses, had two fans (one to blow away from me and one to blow it out the door, door open, window open, ventilation system on...So as you see I do stay safe. Especially in our small shop, we needed the fans. I ran like two beads outside of the booth on the project and the whole shop had a lot of smoke in it. After the fans, she cleared out real quick.

He uses one, but no Aaron @ 6061 isn't making these. Go to the site in the post above mine. Great guys to work with. They custom made me one for my welder and are going to produce more.
