    You are Christmas shopping and you try to write your check with a piece of soap stone.

    People honk when the light turns green as you check out welds on truck next to you at intersections.

    Guy I used to work with used to weld with a fairly big mohawk, man that looked odd by the end of the day sometimes.

    Your neighbors have friends over every evening at dusk to watch the fireworks show and you are not invited.

    Your tractor weighs more now than when new and looks like a calico CAT.



    Just trying to keep the Big Sky warm.

    Probably already said but...

    You know you are a GOOD arc welder when you don't have to chip slag at all because it just falls off.

    I was at our local Tech school taking my reoccurring structural test for all positions with 3" pipe. I take the test there because there instructors are certified by the state. The day I was there they were conducting a arc welding class with mostly newbies. I was going def from all the chipping hammers. I started welding and after about 15 minutes I noticed about 10 students over my shoulder in amazement. They asked for my best advice... I told them... "Don't whale with you chipping hammers, your instructors listen to how much chipping you do because poor welds tend to hold slag and they can tell how good your welds are by how much pounding you are doing". Let's just say the rest of the day was a little quieter at least.

    You know your a "True arc welder" if...

    You only have one good left glove but have 20 right gloves.

    You figure you can make that one tack without your hood but you still bump your head forward to bring down that imaginary hood.

    You truly love the sound a chipping hammer makes when it slides alongside a nice weld.

    You can't wait to finish the weld so you can see the slag curl up.

    You don't stop welding when that slag finds its way into your shoe, instead you shake your foot in hopes of getting it to the toe of your shoe.
