    Sounds like you have a personal experience with this.

    Only got to page 32, but gotta add mine........
    YMBAWI: your company installs a new time clock that is fingerprint operated, and you have to use a pin pad instead because it won't read your prints
    YMBAWI: your changing your 1 yo daughters diaper and you wonder if her diaper rash cream will soothe the flash burn on your arm (between the bottom of your shirt sleeve and top of glove, inside left arm)
    YMBAWI: the door bell rings at 3:22am, because your buddies were rock crawlin and broke the jeep again and need you to weld it back together so they can get to work in the morning, or you have to put the TB275 and some 6011 in the truck to go fix the jeep broke on the rock/in the mud
    YMBAWI: your wife buys a beautiful brand new pair of red wing boots, but you have her take them back because they have laces, (and we all know laces get expensive)


    All true!

    P.S. so many of the posts are true lol.

    YMBAWI you have a whole cabinet of consumables from different jobs. (That ones are little secret though...)

    -- you can read a whole sign of words on a window while standing behind it!

    -- you find this thread after 3 years and reread most of it again. This is great!

    Rather than set up your torch you use 6010 to cut almost everything

    YMBAW if you think tungsten is an acceptable toothpick

    When others say they are a welder you roll your eyes and wonder if they can actually weld

    You buy a cheap Lincoln so you can make enough to buy the dream miller

    You always carry at least one flashlight at all times

    You think 308L tig wire makes nice jewelry

    You got a tig torch tattooed on your hand

    You discover nomex/ Kevlar laces and buy the whole box cuz they might last a little longer

    Your sunglasses are cutting glasses

    You think every boiler tube should have been welded by you

    carbon rods

    I have used carbon rods to fill worn out hitch pin holes. Put the carbon rod in the hole and weld around till the hole is full to your standards and pull the rod out and you have a perfectly round hole you dont have to try and drill

    ...if you know that mid weld, you are on fire and still finish the rod
    ...if you feel a molten slag ball fall down and land on your arm/leg/neck and you shimmy around trying to get it off without breaking the arc

    You start welding thinking your auto dark hood is on but it's actually a clear face shield

    You might be a welder if you tell your girlfriend to hand you a rod in your sleep
