Welding... :).. Nice pics

I know about the lack of protection but these guys have been doing this for the last 20 years.... They feel gloves hinder there ability now..

eye protection is what I'd be worried about, skin protection also-the burn associated can cause cancer-especially if you live in the state of California.

While he is wearing dark glasses in teh pic above, I must admit again that these ppl do not use protection most of the time.

Ehsan, what is he making? Do you have any close up photos of the parts? And of forming them, that is what blows me away, how they are making these parts with common tools.

He appears to be using a torch instead of arc welder so it is not as bad as it seems. Just look at those things, is that guy talented or what?

With sparks like that flying? If it is a torch, it would have to be running very lean or cutting....unless I'm missing something.

Look closely at his right hand, I could be wrong but that sure looks like a torch to me besides I just don't think anyone could arc weld for any length of time with just glasses although back years ago it was common not to use gloves. I even saw an old welding manual (GE printed in the 1920s) that SUGGESTED using gloves but went on to say that a "great many weldors prefer not to use them" I guess something like that was considered sissy back then

Gloves, a hood or googles and a stool
It looks like an uncomfortable position but when you get use to working one way you dont want to change. I have done my share of welding without gloves but I wont ever weld again without glasses and a hood.
I hate to wear gloves when I tig weld.

If you are talking about an eye burn from arc welding it is usually referred to as a "flash burn". Go over to the garage/tools section and check out "burned eyes" at the very top of the page for a recent and ongoing discussion about this type of burn and a few safety tips.
