It was one of those small jobs that would only take 5 mins.
Weld back together a small metal hanger where the spot had come apart!
Clear some bench and floor space in the garage, get out the MIG and clamp the work in the vice.
Strike the arc and blob on a few welds, them "BANG".
I did not see any flash as the welding screen went dark but a leisure battery sat on the floor next to exploded. I guess that a weld splatter dropped on to the top and burnt through. The Hydrogen gas did the rest.
The area and myself got spayed with acid which meant a very fast dash inside to de-robe and wash followed by several hours washing down and clearing the garage area.
I was lucky in that the welding mask protected my eyes and face
It only takes a few minutes to properly clear an area before welding or any hot work for that matter. I know that I will remember that for a while.
