Open and close your mouth all day and then you might get your answer....

I weld just about my whole life... And the last thing I would want is a helmet I have to open my mouth to lift my shield every five Mins...That's all I was trying to say about the shield you think highly of..

Randy, you have such a problem with simple belief. There are a few reasons why people can't believe what is told them from others. Do a little study and you may be able to help yourself with that. I posted about a helmet I have used for years. You posted that you can't imagine it working, I post a response, a friendly response to you understanding how you can feel that way, it is an odd helmet. I can understand how at first look it would seem very odd to you. I posted a friendly response expressing my understanding of how I feel. You chose to call me a liar? HUH? You have no idea what I do every day or what I have done every day with that helmet yet you choose to call me a liar?

That I don't like it? HUH? Are you going to tell me I don't like Italian food too? HUH?

Randy, I have spend days on end with that helmet on putting cars back together. We are talking doing one car after another replacing trunk floors and frame rails and quarters and roofs and rockers on any one of these cars having hundreds, many hundreds of welds. I have worn it all day long welding on street rod bodies, replacing the wood with metal, replacing floors, firewalls ext.

But you choose to call me a liar? What in the world possesses you to do this? You know NOTHING about my life, yet you can call me a liar about me liking an F-ing welding helmet? HUH?

Jeeez dude, you need to take a chill pill and look up at the clouds and thank God you have a life to do what you want instead of calling me a liar about my liking cargo pants.

I was cool up to post #29 then you started acting like a smart a**... And I just answered you back.... Never said you was a liar... You thought that...

As far as tacking body panels on at a body shop and being a welder,, There's two different things here.. I forgot about ALL the custom cars you built... My bad..

So if anyone should chill out.. I think it's YOU...

You need to take a chill pill Randy you really do. You are saying sly crap because you have a problem with me. You have told me over and over so I know you are tossing barbs, it isn't that friggin hard to see that.

Lay off and have fun Randy you are using way too much energy on me.

It's sad really, it really is.

I asked a question on post 29..


Because you was being a smart a** about it on post 30..


I was asking you a simple question... About welding all day long... And I didn't mean tacking a quarter panel on at a body shop... There's a big difference....

The 7 years I been here your on here 24-7,, Even at work... You must have a very nice boss..

So that's why the question came up about welding 10 to 12 hours a day... What I was getting at since I weld all my life,, Was having to move you mouth all day every day just would be a pain to do if you weld ALL DAY LONG..Wouldn't work for me and I see it didn't work for someone else here either..

A lot of pipeline welders prefer a normally home made "pancake" hood. I do not know the why behind it but it is popular and unique.
A hood that is good for one guy isnt what the other guy likes or it doesnt work well for him.

Here is a picture of a Pipeliner with eyeliner wearing her custom hood.



Here is a store bought version:




Here is a picture of a hood style that I was given when my welder retired. It is used when there is no room for anything larger than your head to fit into a tight spot. Talk about hot!



Pipeline welders are IMHO some of the best welders out there. They have to run all position x-ray quality welds. If they "bust" a given number of x-rays, they are told to load their truck up and go home.

A couple of welders at the shop where I worked as a pipefitter were just incredible.
They could run SS wire X-ray field welds and get 100% time after time after time.
Who ever said it can't be done is wrong.
Just takes talent and experiance and a darn good pipefitter making up the joint for them

That bring back some memories... I ran a automatic welder a long time ago like the ones they show..... Then I got picked out of 10,000 In the yard to weld the stainless steel anchor winch piping on the big ship's...There was two of us in the whole yard that was allowed to do it.. Had to pass X-Ray with ABS And Coast guard testing.. everything had to be Tig welded...

But them automatic welder made you lazy fast..
