    This afternoon it will be 90 or more, so I won't welding if I need to wear leathers until the sun goes down. Even then it will be too hot, but bearable.

    I wear leathers and the heavy cotton shirt, so I won't get burned or worse get RF burns from the electric welders.

    The leather apron while using a wire wheel is a good idea. Guess I never think to put it on and then I'm picking wires out.

    started a topic Leathers

    Leathers

    I went thru my shop and collected my leathers in to one pile. I have three aprons, but one goes with my blacksmithing, different things in the pockets mainly. I have an upper jacket, a full jacket, sleeves, gauntlets, good gloves and not so good gloves.

    I have the heavy cotton welders shirt, and then several buckets, fixed shade lenses and autoshade, as well as two or three pairs of goggles. Is there any type or needed style that I have mentioned that I should have? I stick weld, plasma cut, MIG weld and TIG weld.
