Pros and safety

I'm an amatuer, but even I know to wear safety helmet, gloves, and protective clothing. That's obviously a third-world country with guys going barefoot, so I know it's not here in the USA.

Still, with the TV shows of the "Pro's" that build the nicest custom motorcycles and cars, watching them nitwits doing things that are insanely unsafe is incredible. It's a wonder that OSHA doesn't shut them down.

Not to mention the example it sets to young ones coming up in the trades.

Steve

I don't know what to say but I did get a laugh. No rules hear. well all I can say is you will not have any eye left if he keep doing that. not to mention a real bad sunburn. I knew someone who did that and ended up with little eye sight.

ehsankiani, I love the pictures that yo post, keep them coming.

Also they are gas welding not ark or mig/tig. Yes protection should be worn but its not as bad as you would think.

As Steve pointed out they are gas welding and although dangerous it is not as bad as it looks. It can certainly cause problems over time (or instantly if they get hot material in the eye!) but will not cause the kind of injury that an arc welder would cause. No one can arc weld without protection no matter how tough they might think they are or what kind of old ridiculous claims one may hear about. I think most of us who have been welding for years have seen people torch weld, braze or flame cut without glasses and probably some here have even done this themselves on occasion. In my younger days while I still thought I was superman I have been guilty of picking up a cutting or brazing torch without glasses but I would not even consider doing such a thing now, NO JOKE

I am guilty of this also, but not any more. The one thing I wish I would have used is hearing protection, all the years of using an air hammer and other thing, I have some major hearing loss.

Hey I have a little hearing lose to, but I think a couple hearing aids would be a good thing if I get tired of people flaping there lipe all you got to do is turn them off.

Ok, Just a note about the hearing aids, I have bilateral hearing lose due to noise exposure and I have to wear hearing aids. These things are not only a pain to put up with but they DO NOT!!!!! restore normal hearing, I will never have the pleasure of hearing anything as it sounds naturally again.

Did I forget to mention that they also cost thousands and are expensive to operate? TAKE CARE OF THAT HEARING!!
