Default Re: Anyone use supere cheap harbor freight type welders for their bikes??

Saftey gear is very important.

When I was in welding school, one of the guys had spatter land in the pocket of his flannel shirt.. the problem was he was working on a certification test piece, it had to be one continuous job so he couldn't stop and restart. He managed it, somehow. A few seconds to throw the jacket on would have saved him a shirt, pack of smokes and a lot of chest hair. At least his lighter was in his back pocket.
We were shown a few pictures and safety vids the first day as well that didn't pull any punches when it came to showing what injuries could happen. Spatter or slag in shoes, regulator fragment damage, and so on.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
