Everyone knows you can get welder burn if you do not wear full sleeves when welding.
The other day in another thread, I mentioned I had broke the tail wheel off my brush cutter.
Had to cut out the broken sleeve, find a tube, cut it to fit and weld it in.
After doing that I went to mowing to test the work.
That evening my inner arms felt sun burned and it occurred to me I had been welding in a T shirt?

The moral of this story is do not forget the safety rules you know, if you do you will pay.

Safety is easily overlooked till you get hurt/ burned. I have to remind myself every time I grab a tool .

Ray, I've been welding with a sleeveless shirt all summer and haven't burned yet!
