  • Maybe I'm wrong

    Ok, I was tacking a couple of pieces together tonight at 6pm. I live in circle (culdasack?) don't have a garage just a 8x10 storage area in front the car port. I didn't know it but my neighborhood was doing Halloween tonight. I had solid weld curtains all around my work area and a woman stuck her head in the curtains just as I pulled the trigger. She proceeded to cuss me out for doing this sort of thing in the middle of the open on the night the neighborhood was celebrating Halloween. I held my temper and tried to explain it was her fault cause the curtain facing out was a label with 3" letters (WELDING IN PROGRESS SAFETY CURTAIN). Anyway she stomped off and Law enforcement officials showed up a few minutes later. They said I was wrong for welding in a residential area. No ticket but It got me steamed.

      i think you were well within your right's to weld with the curtin up and she should have shut up and left. as for the law as long as you were not welding for profit (as a buisnes ) tell them to step off too. if you own your house (you or your bank) then you can do welding as a hobbie. you can not be found neglajent as you took proper safty precausions, and she was trespassing.
      it's your yard weld away and tell them all to stay out.
      thanks for the help

        I don't own, I'm in the military living in military quarters with my family. Seriously considering buying a place that I can have Alittle privacy (definately a garage.) With neighbors you have to call to get their attention not flush the toliet.

          Being a military comunity there may be certain local ordinances prohibiting such activity. Anyway I think that you are the victim of a crime and not the violator. At least thats how i feel.

            military quarters

            sorry you are scre-ed, you got no rights there they own you and your house.sorry been there done that youre only option is the 1 above. (move)

            there should be a place on base that you can use to do your welding, they had a place for auto repairing at my last base we could weld,torch just about anything there. ask around and if werst comes to werst check with your C.O. he can look into it for you. the 1 pluss to being on base is it wont take as long to get home after you get done playing.

            ummm not that i would ever have done it but there is always in the house as an option ive done a lot stranger things in my house LOL

            good luck

              We have a weld shop in our motorpool I could use, but finding an excuse to go back to work it just doesn't sound right. Thats probly what I'm going to have to do. Won't have to worry about it as of Jan ( going to back to Iraq for 12 months don't have to worry about military spouses that think they out rank you because they aren't in the military.)

                      yep, THANX MAN !!! . when you get there, STAY SAFE, and KICK ASS !!!

                      maybe the cop as just giving you a warning. or maybe you really were not doing anything wrong. i would find out from the higher ups. ask a few of them, as you may first ask the one that doesn't want you to be doing that, even though there is no law against it. and he is just making up his own law.

                      you had your reason to weld where you were, just as i do. but if i had a weld shop to use, you can bet i would use that instead of my humble garage.

                      people say "move". if things were only that simple. as moving is not a simple matter for many of us, sometimes to the piont were its not possible.


                      GOOD LUCK to you. and let us know how it goes.

                        wrench3047,

                        I actually own one shop which is in a garage within my residential neighborhood. The large shop I use is out of generosity of its owner as we have been friends and competitors for 18 years.

                        I do mostly TIG work in the residential area and not much has been said. However, at one time I was building mailboxes in a semi production type enviroment with GMAW and some stick for the cast iron parts. One of the neighbors came down about midnight and tried to lecture me while I was smoking some dual shield. You know when it is all running so well you just hate to stop.

                        I was in an open area without such curtains and signs. Anyway once it was known the mailbox project was for a neighborhood people left me alone to work. I have never had another encounter with the neighbors or the law. My business license and all relevant paperwork work shows my business at my residence. Even though we have restrictions against noxious activities I have never had serious problems. Lucky???

                          military housing is different

                          millitary housing is like no other.they have verry strict and some times stupid roules and regulations. like when you have to mow your lawn and how high the grass is alowed. it is realy an isue that he needs to take up with his C.O. but i think he will find that he need's to weld elswere.although millitary housing has its advantages (no rent being the best of all, it has its down side that just cant be gotten around. most of you are looking at this as if it were your house or on your street and it just dosent work that way in the millitary.
                          sorry to say it just dosent.

                            James,

                            You are correct. My dad spent many years in the Navy including WWII and Korea. I haver heard more than I want to know even in peace time. I was relating a civilian experience should wrench find a "regular" neighborhood.

                              I've been looking through the housing regulation and nothing is in there about welding, just no automotive work( nothing more than check oil and filling tires). about the no rent thing thats changed now, we pay rent soon we'll have to pay for power and water too.
