re: Burned eyes

Alot of you know me by now on this forum. Well dont take any chances when welding, and i mean none. I am completely blind in my left eye, and am losing my vision fast in my right eye. I can see fair out to 8 to 12 inches, but after that its all a big blur. Im only 57 and cant drive anymore, and that took all the fun out of my love for car shows and taking my 1917 model T out for an evening drive. Please take it from me ok, its not worth not wearing a helmet it took my eyes away from me so i know. Now i have taught myself to do alot of things so i can still work in my shop, but cant build the cars you all get to build. Im still having fun now but it took some time to get over going blind. Its not easy to deal with, and i would not want to see any of you have to go though this. Wear that ***** helmet please.
