Clever hack - welding

| No Comments

The primary concern is blocking ultra-violet light from the welding arc.  Just as it gives your skin sunburn, it can do a number on the cornea of your eye.  Glass does an excellent job of blocking UV light.


About 20 years ago, a friend of mine and I went in on a decent small wire welder setup.  The first time I worked with it, I did not have a fire-proof work surface so I used the garage floor. Squatted down and welded away for the better part of the afternoon.  Wore long-sleeve sweatshirts, jeans, gloves, helmet, etc...  I forgot my feet.  I wore sandals and socks and woke up the next morning with very sunburned feet.  Hurt to walk for a few days - the skin blistered.
