Once there was a chap named Bob
Who worked away quietly doing his job
Turning metal from this thing to that
Altering and changing its original shape of flat
He accomplished this using tools that could grind
As well as torches and other ones you would find
In a welding and fabrication shop
He worked every day sometimes non stop
Cutting and grinding and welding a bit
Then one day something got hit
With a shower of sparks from Bob's awesome work
Unfortunately fate added a slight little quirk
A leak of gas of the combustible style
Had formed a silent cloud that in a very short while
Ignited with a very loud thunderous boom
That shook the ground and filled the room
With lots of smoke and bits of debris
And Bob was no where that you could see
He had moved on to his new found occupation
As a singing welder at an angelic destination

As much as that is a stupid person rite there!!!! I cant think of how many time I have seen and sometimes done that exact thing myself, I weld and fabricate for a living and sometimes there is just no good place for that set of torches especially when you are building big projects. You do your best.

Thinking with thickness of tanks not an issue with that? Small leaking around gauges maybe could go? My worst problem with sparks is getting them to hit some projects I just cleaned up or even painted and it all stuck onto it. Start Over! I think if really a big issue, they would have a big slip over tank unit guard made by now, some Osha required thing, heh!!
