    , I was cipping slag with my glasses on and it hit me in the corner of my eye. It stuck in too... The more I tried to dig it out, the further it went in. I went home on that note.... I chip with the hood on now.

    Been burned like that a million times. Worst...no dumbest one was when I was welding sheetmetal studs on the side of a building and my leg started itching something fierce. I was certain something was boring in and laying eggs. So, after finishing my bead, I reached down with the stinger and scratched my leg with the still glowing rod end!!! Never did that again.


    I also chipped some fresh 7018 slag at eye level without glasses. Slag hit me in the corner of the eye and burned itslef into the corner of my eyeball and ele lid. Piece of slag was the size of a dime. Took out my tear duct and everything. Most of it grew back and healed up fine. Never did that again either.

    Just remember....that what doesn't kill you will make you stronger...or at least smart enough not to do it again.

I feel your pain.....I have never gotten the hot wire treatment, but have run cold wire into my finger tips many times....

    Only thing that might be worse is slag in the eye

    I bet you said in a real calm voice, oh darn

    Never did that but I was sitting at my table, chipping slag and a piece fell in my lap, didn't know it until something felt awfully hot.
