In the other silly question thread, there is some mention of welding shirts.
What kind do you like? I will weld in most anything, including a T shirt if
it isn't going to last more than thirty seconds, but for most welding, I use
100% Wrangler khaki with the white snap buttons. I do like the denim ones,
but they don't last as long. Fast to put on and off, and good UV
protection. Light starching makes the dingleberries bounce off a little
better, but IMHO, makes them a little hotter. Depends on the ambient
temperature. Same for leathers. I haven't used them in a long time, and
only use them for overhead or under a car. Carharts when it's cold.
I have a few BB to dime sized white spots from 3rd degree burns gotten while
doing an xray weld, and not wanting to blow the weld. Even good shirts
won't stop big blobs. Other than that, I have lots of little white spots
all over the place, probably more common to welders than the general
Heart surgery pending?
