I was watching Orange County Choppers yesterday.

I was real surprised to see they way they use a mig.

Several times during the show, a few of the different guys were welding with a mig with no helmet. Either with just sun glasses or no eye protection at all, they would line up the welder then look away and/or close there eyes when they pulled the trigger.

Seems pretty stupid to me and a bad example for the young and inexperienced watchers who may pick up a habit like that.

I know the show is really kind of staged. But I kind of think that this really is common practice for these guys. You would think they would have learned the hard way by now.
