    ...You go into a welding shop for a welding test to get a job and the foreman gives you some scrap pieces, spins the dials on the machine, and you just smile because you used the same set-up on the same material the day before and remember the settings that worked perfectly...

    You might be a weldor if you don't know your kids birthdays, but you know every type, size, and quantity of filler and electrode you have on hand.

    YMBAWI:

    You can throw a stick electrode at the telephone pole across the parking lot and it sticks EVERY TIME...

    You have aluminum wire from the last part of a 1 lb. spool strung around your living room for a tv antenna...

    The radio antenna on your vehicle is 1/8" aluminum filler rod...

    You have a back scratcher on your bedside table bent from 3/32" stainless filler rod...

    You have another one in your tool box and one in your vehicle...

    4. you could care less if your truck gets scratched but god forbid something hurt the miller blue!
    How true!!!

    "You know you're a welder if..."

    ...'All position' means your body.

    ...You just grit your teeth while a white hot spatter ball burns through your scalp so you don't mess up your weld.

    ...You can identify different stick electrodes by their smell.

    If you forget you were just grinding and put your grinding shield on in place of your hood and start to weld with it still on.

    When you are doing your "other" job that pays the bills and your mind wanders to the TIG welder at home and how relaxing it is to do it, even if you don't have much experience yet, and your welds suck. Wonder how much more I'll like it when I can do it correctly! It's the best.

    might be a weldor if

    a few more popped into my brain today...hope not too many are repeats
    i swear i could come up with these all day if i had the time

    you might be a weldor if...

    1. you've ever heated canned pasta w/an Oxy Acet torch for lunch

    2. you've practiced tig on beer cans

    3. you worry more about your ability to grow eyebrows than unibrows

    4. you could care less if your truck gets scratched but god forbid something hurt the miller blue!

    5. you rush through past 6000 cars at a hot rod show to see what new toys miller's created (last weekend for me)

    6. you have just as much fun welding as you do driving a muscle car

    7. you've borrowed "gravity boots" just to see if you could weld upside down

    8. you're more excited about finishing your project than going to the bar on friday night

    9. you find more mig tips than quarters in your couch (and leave the quarters)

    10. you spent more time planning your next project than planning the wife'gf's birthday (not recommended...highly dangerous/explosive)

    You know...

    You know you're a welder when they start an ore mine in your driveway!
    You know you're a welder when you visit the U.S.S Midway, which is now a museum, and you're looking at all the welds!

    a nice shot of J.D. will clean the throat out after a long day, question is. dose that stuff start to rust in the tummy ???
    A quick blast before you start will reduce that . . . .

    You know you're a welder when you spend more time on the site than with your wife!

    I haven't read all the previous posts but here goes.......

    You might be a weldor if Miller sends you Christmas Cards every year and you have a "standing invitation" to the annual company BBQ.
