    You might be a weldor if your computer is cluttered with stuff like this.

    The 10 Welding Commandments.

    1. Thou shalt not weld on an unpurged tank, for the noise will be very loud when the tank explodes and thy friends will console thy widow in ways generally unacceptable to thee.

    2. Thou shalt secure thy tanks, lest one fall on thy foot and transform thee into less than a graceful dancer when called upon by thy wife or other female friend.

    3. Thou shalt clean thy work carefully, lest thy gaze upon thy work falling apart as it passeth out of thy sight.

    4. Thou shalt place thy work in jigs, or other holding fixtures, for the eye is a poor instrument for the measurement of angles and great will be the wrath of thy leader as thou art doing thy task a second time.

    5. Thou shalt not weld near batteries, compressed gasses, or flammable materials lest a spark from thy labors would cause thee to continue thy chosen profession in an open field or other such drafty place.

    6. Thou shalt take great care of thy tools and equipment, lest thy friend who is in charge of such things smites thee about thy head and shoulders for being a wastrel and a knave.

    7. Thou shalt not perform thy art without proper ventilation, for the smell of toxic gasses produced by the heating of primers, and plated or painted sufaces is worse than a bad cigar and will remain with thee until the end of thy days.

    8. Thou shalt not weld without goggles, nor shalt thou allow others to gaze upon thy labors, lest thy employment, or the employment of others be changed to sitting on cold and rainy streets while selling pencils.

    9. Thou shalt wear sturdy gloves, for burns upon thy hands are a source of great pain when thou art attempting to raise thy bowling average.

    10. Thou shalt ground thy work, when thou weldeth with a machine of arcs, for thou art a poor conductor of electricity and the shock which thou shalt receive shall ruin thy plans for thy weekend.

    you might be a welder if your farmers tan only goes from your shoulder to 1/2 way up your forearm 0n the inside of your left arm.

    Your wife makes you take your 7 year old son to the emergency room for flash burn in his eyes and you tell the doctor how to treat it ,the doctor checks it out on the hospital computer (because he has never had a case)and he comes back with a prescription for the same thing you bought OTC 4 hours before, then sends you home. ( PS true story spent 3 hours in E-room on a sat night!)

    Not really completing the sentence but I remember some bumper stickers my dad had on his old welding rig:

    Welders do it in all positions

    Welders are always in heat

    YMBAWI - Your neighbors mention they won't call the zoning enforcement if you fix their gate or whatever.

    YMBAWI - The wife claims you smell like metal and are not allowed in the bed until you shower first.

    If you love to put a little extra on the weld bead, but keep forgetting who has to grind it all down flush.
