Lets just say frayed coverall cuffs and cutting torches can cause some extra excitement and leave it at that. Sure that I have the bottom third of a 55 gal plastic barrel for a dog water dish though.

I doubt there is anyone at all on the HAMB who hasn't set himself on fire. Just a natural part of the old car environment...

Yes i'm sure we all have. When I do it usually goes like this, thinking to my self "Whats burning?" look down think calmly to self "oh I'm on fire" then it clicks and out loud"OH SHIT IM ON FIRE" then pad myself out and keep working. Hell last weekend I did it twice in 5 minutes. I guess I should have let my coat cool off longer. It reignited rather quickly

When building a demolition derby car, make sure you weld the door shut after you are done welding in the roll bar.

Makes it a lot easier to get out after the bench seat catches on fire

...plus there is flameless cookery! You pick up that part that was glowing red 30 seconds ago...you discover that the spots you are seeing are actually grinder slag permanently embedded in your brand new glasses...you realize that the smell of burning bacon is actually your hand that is holding the chisel you are sharpening on the grinding wheel...

If you haven't set yourself on fire you aren't a hot rodder.

Eventually you learn to wear leather boots and cotton clothes. Plastic and polyester goes up like gasoline.

And if you are doing heavy duty grinding and welding wear proper safety gear.

Incidentally cotton overalls can be fireproofed by dipping in borax solution and letting dry. Not exactly Kevlar but better than nothing.

lit my crotch up pretty good one time grinding one thing or another... luckily I had on a nice pair of Carhart overalls on and didn't burn my junk. Carharts over jeans... if it was just my jeans things would have been very different.

another time I was cutting up some 53 Chevy remains with a torch and my neighbor came over and started talking to me. I thought I turned off the gas but there was a little flame coming out still and I lit my pants up around my knee. not too bad though.

why a person would come up and start talking to a guy working with a cutting torch is beyond me. he was a boat mechanic and was around tools and stuff all the time.. should have known better.

The other day I was overhead welding with what I thought was my "tough" dickies jacket then in the corner of my helmet I see an orange light reflecting, when I get done with my bead I see that the cloth hood that was attached to it was on fire!

Had my shirt burned clear off of me in the '70s. 45% 2nd and 3rd degree, they said I would not see the sun come up. Fooled 'em.

Have set my clothing on fire more than once either welding or grinding.

Set my hair on fire a couple of weeks ago. See:
http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/s...d.php?t=673544

Pretty damned funny actually.

Several times ... while cutting down a pair of coil springs with a cutoff wheel, I learned to pay attention to the direction the sparks are flowing. Cost a pair of near-new jeans but no trip to the emergency room.

Years ago, while surviving Minnesota winters, I learned the wisdom of not leaning over the engine when using starting fluid (ether) when your buddy hits the starter. It takes about 6+ weeks for eyebrows and lashes to grow back.

Welding slag deposited in my t-shirt pocket - I was leaning so the pocket was hanging away from me. I didn't feel the heat, and really didn't notice until the smoke near blinded me. Of course I was on a ladder and was all gymnastically positioned so I couldn't make any sudden moves - yet I was able to get the damn shirt off before anything more than minor burns...

Plenty of times, but the thread also reminded me of something I did when I was really young, 12 y/o or so.

I was at home one summer and bored out of my mind. Went into the garage, and decided to see if I could blow up a plastic milk jug by filling it with a few teaspoons of gasoline (mom wasn't home). Put the gas in a jug, and flicked a match at it. It hit the mouth, lit up with a semi-loud "whoomph" and a 6" high flame, but then it slowly started to burn down as the oxygen in the milk container ran out. I picked it up when there was still a small flame on at the mouth, and decided to blow it out. What that did was inject oxygen into the container that was filled with gasoline vapor with a flame on top. Air+gas+flame = BOOM! As soon as I blew into the container, a foot long flame shot out. I singed all my hair and burned off my eyebrows.

I never did that again, and I had a hard time explaining to my mother why my eyebrows were gone.

How can you weld without setting yourself on fire at least once? Isn't that how we learn?

Ya, and the girl friend seems to think that there is something wrong with it... Like normal people never set themselves on fire. Don't they? Guess heretofore she just hasn't been hanging around with the right people.

its been about 20 years since but i was wearing some cheapo work gloves while cutting off an exhaust pipe and the red hot slag dropped into my hand holding the torch. set that glove on fire instantly. i dropped the still lit torch. shook the glove of in one fast downward move then turned off the torches before i further schorched the finish off the shop floor.

Another good tip, keep a spray bottle of water handy when cutting welding and grinding. adjust the sprayer to "stream:. If you set yourself or car on fire, a couple of squirts puts it out. Save a fortune in fire extinguishers, also by keeping it handy the fire does not have a chance to spread while you run for the extinguisher.

I was working out in the garage a few years back during the winter. I had one of those lp heaters that look like a deep fryer and had my back to it and was not more than a foot or so away from it. My ass suddendly started feeling warmer than before and I looked back and there was flames shooting off my ass and back. My carhart coveralls had a small frayed area and that caught fire and burnt a hole in my jeans and the hoody that I was wearing underneath them. Being a cheap fawker I wore those coveralls to work and got shit from my co-workers for having "assless chaps", lol. I wore them all that winter and pitched them after the winter was over.

Many years ago I cut up an SS 396 Chevelle to build a dirt track car. I was welding in a shop with no heat during the cold of winter and I was really bundled up. I raised my helmet to find that the whole front of me was on fire. I did a little dance while beating the fire out. There is a reason, that while welding in the Navy, we always had a fire watch.

I know that I have set my self on fire many times over the years but that particular time has always stood out as one of the best.

My wife told me to smell a candle......so I did. It was stil lit. I snuffed up a nice flame and the whole room smelled like singed nose hair. That is all I could smell for about 2 days.

Back in the mullet days, my room mate and I both set our mullets on fire welding on several occasions.

I melted the front of a sweatshirt grinding, noticed when my belly started stinging.

While not on fire, I was under the truck cutting bolts with the angle grinder when a glowing red chunk fell right down my shirt. Still have a scar across my nipple from it...

I have never set myself on fire. Lots of other close calls, so I am not that careful. My 79-year old neighbor lit himself up recently working on his diesel Mercedes. He guy who extinguished him did not know there was a body inside the flames. Thankfully, he died.

Reminds me of Thornhill.... we were working on a 69 charger for our boss, and trying to get it running after a long storage. He cuts a pop can in half and puts gas in it, holds it over the carb while Billy tries to start it, and as it back fires he jerks back and throws gas on his arm and in billy's toolbox, both he and the toolbox were on fire... he was a shakin' that arm trying to get away from it!!!

Awesome that's for the reminding me!!!

Oh yes. It does happen, even when you think you are being careful. I set a good sized rag on fire the other day, while welding. It was nearly 5 feet away, and I'm still not sure how it happened. But I picked it up and threw it into the wood stove, so nothing important got fried. Then again, I have burned holes into my shirt and an old coat while grinding. And every now and then I come across something that I had stored away, that has been bombarded with sparks of some sort. Plastic bags or wrappers usually tell the tale.

I've set myself on fire working on the car like a lot of us have. But I do semi-professional magic and use fire there. That's when it gets exciting. You are working in front of a crowd.

Wasn't wearing a hat and shot fire from the tip of my thumb and my hair went up in flames like Michael Jackson doing the Pepsi commercial.....................

The fray on the bottom of my jeans, caught fire last week. I didn't even waste time taking off the welding mask. The welding gloves made it easy to smother the flames, the welding mask made it cool to watch all the purdy different shades of green. Kids don't do this at home!

not only have I set myself on fire,,, I've set a couple of my friends on fire too. Much funnier when its not you.

I have also watched as a friend of mine was welding an exhaust in his new work shirt, he comes over after its done to join in our conversation. Noticed that there was smoke coming from his pocket but didnt say anything, his employee was talking with me and he saw it too and give me the "look".

Soon the friend in the new shirt says "you guys smell something burning?" "ahhhhh No" and we kinda looked around like we were concerned. Shortly after that the flames began and he then notices that he is on fire. He accused us of many unfriendly things as we rolled around on the floor cackling.

Its not like we were gonna let him get consumed by the flames, I was holding a shovel to put him out with.

Iv been on fire many times from welding and grinding.
But the one that freaked me out the most was when the fuzz on the new flannel decided to completely and entirely flash over in about a quarter of a second and just as fast go out.

It is 1969 and I am taking a night time welding course up at the local High school and having a bit of trouble getting on to how this all works. Now I am one of the lucky guys that managed to whip the cigaret habit 35 years ago but I was still hooked up hard during this learning period. So we are into the uphill part of welding school and I have a package of Smokes & a book of matches in my shop shirt. I am under the hood and I am pushing the puddle up the slope, the rod ain't stuck and there is no way I am backing out no matter what. A big puff of smoke rolls up under the hood but even though I can hardly see what is going on the puddle is still good and the smoke is subsiding. I run out of rod and it is time for break and some bragging about my new found talent (not). I reach in my pocket, pull out a package of smoked Smokes and a book of pre lit matches. I guess I didn't rally catch myself on fire but I got really close. Even after the schooling I am not much more than a mud dobber at best.

When I was working we had about a dozen guys welding at any given time. It was very common to hear someone walk past another guy and just casually say, "Hey, you're on fire" and keep walking. I used to weld on steel rule dies and was always bent over from the waist; when the sparks would come down on me I'd feel my flannel shirt flash off the "fuzz" on the shirt on my back. If the heat didn't stop right away I'd just ask somebody if I was on fire on my back. Used to light up my old frayed denim aprons at least once a day, that's how you knew it was time for a new apron...in a day or so. On the serious side I did witness someone fatally burned and a friend was burned so bad that he might have been better off dead: not at all a pleasent thing and not something to take too lightly, it van get real bad real quick!

Just about everyday. Wear nomex welding coat/leathers, and 100% cotton sweatshirts and starched shirts. Helps alot, but with my job as a welder/ inspector it happens almost everyday.

I have a story about my buddy that did. Trying to get my truck on the road for the first time, a couple of buddies pulled an all nighter. The only two of us not drunk and sleeping in the garage decided we were ready to pour gas in to the carb with half a beer can and get her fired up. Forgot to check timing and as my buddy was pouring it in, it fired enough to back fire outa the carb and he poured the gas all down the right side of his body. As he was running around the shop screaming I was trying to knock him down to help him out. Luckily he made enough noise to wake the others out of there drunkin stupor and camp chairs. Now there was two of us chasing him around the garage, I had him about half way down and another kid did a jump and double knee kick to his back just as a 5 gallon bucket of used antifreeze covered all of us. That put the fire out and we got him in a cold shower cloths and all. Next was about 100 mph trip to the hospital at about 6 in the morning. The ER doc said he had 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 17% of his body and all most sent him via chopper to the burn center in Utah. Several weeks later with no skin graphs he was doing pretty good but still complained his back hurt from getting knocked down. By the way my truck made it to the car show......on a trailer.

I wasn't working on my car.... but years ago I was grinding the burrs off some titanium parts at the machine shop I worked at. I got a pretty good build-up of gray on my T-shirt, and all the pretty white sparks from the titanium finally lit off the dust in a blinding flash! When I could see again there was an eight inch diameter red glowing ring on my T-shirt that was getting kinda hot. I grabbed a cup of water nearby and doused myself right quick. Thank gawd I always kept a spare T-shirt in my toolchest. Grabbed my shop apron while I was at it....

My "funniest" one was while I was taking an overhead dual shield weld test. I was welding a beveled steel fixture 1" thick with a backing bar. The weld coupon was 12" long, so, each bead took 20 seconds or so. Anybody that's welded much dual shield knows that sometimes, in the overhead position, it will develop "The BB's of Death!" (tm), which showers you with.... you guessed it..... molten droplets of steel about the size of BB's. I was about 1/3 of the way into the bead when the "BB's of Death!" (tm) started and managed to set my hooded sweatshirt pocket on fire. I knew it was on fire almost immediately, but, when you've dropped $200 on a weld test you have bigger concerns than a little fire at your belt-line. I was nearing the second test cut zone when I could start to see the flames coming in under my hood. I tucked my chin down to keep the flames out of my beard. I was patient with my bead through the cut zone, but, as soon as I got through there I hustled that bead down to a little taper. I flew out the end of that weld coupon. I'm sure it looked terrible. I whipped my helmet off, and ran out of my booth with about 2' of flame running up my chest. I did a little mini belly flop in to the quench tank, and got the flames out. The instructor was already beside me by the time I was out of the quench tank, and asking what had happened. I told him the story, and that I knew I was on fire, but, had to finish the bead. He told me that someday I'd make a damn fine weldor, and offered me some neosporin for the silver dollar sized burn on my gut. My hoody was trashed, and I got to finish my Wabo weld test with a wet crotch. I've still got the scar right next to belly button, but, I guessed I earned my stripes that day.

Good times.

Nice.... now I know that not only will I get some great information and advice on the HAMB but I will also have job security to boot. I have been on fire but not because of anything I did in the garage. We all have fire extinguishers in the garage right???

Years ago.
Starting fluid spraying while trying to start.
Backfired. Can blew up. Flaming can flying through air landed on cowl gas tank with cap off.
Gas tank blew up in small garage.
Dove under vehicle.
Trapped under vehicle holding breath while wall of fire dissipated.
Burnt badly over body.
Skin falling off.
Ambulance.
Put fire out while waiting for ambulance ( was not my barn but elderly neighbors)
Almost died on way to hospital from shock and loss of fluid. When you lose large sections of skin your fluids leak out.
In burn unit for a time.
Don't spray anything in carb to "keep running"
Will get away with it thousands of times, or less....
Have fun!

Yep, that fluid you lose is plasma, and you don't wanna be losing too much of that stuff.
I went to work one day got 50% burns and a broken back to top it off, came home two and a half months later, not fun, have had a few scolds working on cars, nothing much though.
One thing to be very mindfull of though is grinding and thinners.
A friend of mine was grinding the quarter panel on his 60 chevy when a spark hit a tin of thinners that had a cap on it punched full of holes that he'd use to pour on a rag to wipe things down, well that spark caused that tin to explode.
Needless to say, he wound up in the burns unit in a Melbourne hospital needing several skin graft operations, almost cost him his life, which severe burns generally do, burnt half his shed down aswell.
His nickname now is BBQ, at least he has a sense of humour.

Well it's about as bad as when the poor man's ear plug made from an old cotton ball catches fire from that spark.
Now I'll only stick shell casings & cigarette butts in my ear.

Managed to set me, AND two buddies on fire at the same time. We were trying to get a '59 283 running that was in a '67 El Camino. The car had sat in a wrecking yard for 18 years so I wanted to know if it ran before I bought the motor. The car had no fuel system so we had a line going going into a bottle from the pump. after checking the oil, we went ahead and then pulled the dizzy, primed the oil system, replaced the dizzy and and primed the carb. Nothing. Ether. Cough spit. Ether. Cough, ether, run, ether, run. Carb too junked up to run. Put on spare carb. While priming the new carb my buddy cranked it over early and of course, it back fired right into the bottle of gas in my hand. As I quickly withdrew it from the erupting carburetor, flaming gasoline sprayed me, my buddy Joe, and K.C. (who cranked the motor, we we were using a remote starter switch), the ground and the side of the shop. Thankfully we came prepared with a running water hose which Joe promptly grabbed, put himself out, put me out quenched the shop wall and the ground, musta forgot about K.C. 'till he started yelling at Joe, "Forget the concrete man, get me! Get me!" Joe got him out and no one was hurt and we all had a good laugh. Must have been a riot for Joe's dad to be watching our asses jumping around on fire trying to put each other, the shop, the car and the concrete pad out. Got the engine started, ran great. Ten years later we still laugh over that story and I still have the 283 (although it's been blown up and rebuilt, then freshened and seized [crank was machined with a taper on rear main. didn't catch it.] and rebuilt again.)

I'm not at all ashamed to say that a big spark deep down in my ear is one of the few things that truly freaks me the hell out. There should never be that kind of noise coming from inside of my head. Sounds like I sprung a massive air leak, and I'm not even a blonde.

I still have a scar under my chin where a ball of slag landed in my beard when I was cutting up a junk car. It went 30 years without being seen until my beard came off in 2008.

Another time I was in my stock car welding up the seat support and my frayed Levis corduroy pants cuff went up. I did smell something smoldering figured I'd look at it as soon as the welds were finished. My sister walks up and informs me that my pants are on fire. Good thing I had engineering boots on.

I was under the dash of my OT '68 Mustang working on some wiring when I accidentally pushed in the cigarette lighter. It rolls down my arm and falls into the palm of my other hand. I didn't know it was the freakin' lighter until I caught the scent of burning meat, I swear it smelled like walking past Burger King.

I was welding subframe connectors on my sons Mustang using an old jean jacket as a welders coat and caught the frayed collor on fire, trimmed one side of my beard before I could get it off.

When I was in welding school I was sitting on a stool running a bead (if you could call it that then) and a piece of slag fell off, going through my jeans and ran right past my nuts. I quickly dropped my pants and underwear in front of 3 people that were standing close by.

I opted to wear the leather apron after that day when stick welding.

You're lucky you didn't drop ass right after your coveralls caught...there would have been some blue flame added in there for color!

I've gotten used to catching fire, and like some others in this thread mostly due to grinding. I always have a damp rag around when welding/grind/etc so I usually just grab it and put out the flame and continue on with smoldering textiles.

My wife stopped buying me flannel shirts, however I still haven't picked up a shop apron so we each have our limits.

I fired up a 68 camaro so I could pull it in my shop, I stuck a gallon jug in the front,ran a hot wire to the coil, because originally it would not spark, cranking 12 volt outside wire on starter wasn't on.This car was a blowout, in for everything floors, quarters windshield area, everything,nyway I get the car to fire and I see water spraying in my direction (or so I thought when I realized it was gas) turns out the clamp on the rubber line at the carb, had been either left loose or loosened previously. I grabbed the fuel line to stop it from spraying back towards the distributor, which in turn soaks my sweatshirt just as it goes poof. I have now become the Torch, tried pulling the sweatshirt off which only increased the flames.Ended up doing the stop, drop, and roll, to get it out. Some really nice burns on the face chest and arms .Never assume it doesn't work out well.

This made me laugh as I JUST did this two days ago!!

Frayed coverall pants + Testing an old, electric fuel filter that spings a leak = no more frayed coverall pant bottoms!

It caught the garage door frame on fire too and damn near my old dog when I chucked the flaming filter out in the yard!!

I'm used to this sort of bonehead thing but it's nice to know I'm not the only one that's done this!

... couple of tales here where someone is cranking a motor while pouring gas down the carb.

What are you guys thinking? that thought has never even crossed my mind.

would have been a good one with a car I have been working on lately. couldn't get it to start or even cough like it is trying to start. little gas down the carburetor, back inside to crank it over and woosh! ... big ol flame about 2 feet tall. Biggest backfire I have ever seen. I would not want to be the guy holding a glass jar full of gas around that one.

I was welding away on my back with my MIG under an old convertible - on stands, so not a lot of room.
Gettin' covered on sparks and stuff, smellin' burning cotton, etc not thinking much of it, when out of the corner of my eye, I see some flame.
Hmmmmm, I thinks, shouldn't be no flame over there!
Don't ask me how, but a polyester car cover is well alight.
I didn't even have time to swear - I needed to crawl out the other side of the car, over lots of sharp crap (yeah, I shoulda been tidier), got to my feet and headed around to where the flames were gettin' higher.
As you can imagine, every stupid bike, mower, chair, spare rubbish that the wife and kids could put in my way was like a tactical response group training course.
By now, I have regained the ability to curse, but realised I didn't have anything to use to put the fire out, so I set to, trying to stamp it out with my feet.
Stupid idea to wear trainers that night.
The flames are getting higher, I'm dancin on the stupid cover, wishing that I'd worn the asbestos Reeboks, instead of some manmade training shoes.
After about a minute, there's melted car cover stuck to me, stuck to my shoes and stuck to some carpet I'd had leaning against the wall nearby that had decided to get in on the fun.
In the end, I was lucky, I didn't get burned (skin), but got some hair on my legs singed off, my shoes ended up with melted car cover and carpet welded to them.
It stunk like hell in the garage, but when the excitement settled, I sat down and decided I'd been very lucky that I didn't lose a lot more than a car cover and a pair of shoes.
Stupid, but it was a good lesson.
Now I clear a path out in case I've got to get out, and I do check what's around before I start.

Yep, I have done it a couple of times. I've not tried to ignite myself near as many times as my ex-wife has.

Didn't set myself on fire (this time) but did start a nice garage fire while grinding.

LOML had moved the lawn mover gas cans and "covered" them with a plastic tarp for some reason.

Grinder sparks are hot enough to melt through the plastic tarp and still set the gas underneath on fire.

Glad it didn't explode!!

Caught reflection of flames in my visor and grabbed hose before anything except the tarp and one gas can burned up

And yes, there are a few scars on my hide from various hot things


I was welding some pieces together for my brother one day and noticed the inside of my cotton shirt's sleeve was getting holed by the slag. Grabbed a spray bottle of water and kept shirt wet while I finished the production run

This one time at band camp, I was in an underground parking garage in Hollywood,Ca. I sprayed my Nova trunk with that black paint that has white specks in it, but it was dark and I fired up my zippo to get a better look. WHOOSH!! My head is on fire and now I'm rolling on the cement floor like an idiot! Hair mostly gone-check. Eyebrows completely gone-check. Read the spray can, "Contains butane"-check.
Fuckin idiot-check!

My story is not car related and short. It involved a potato gun, whiskey, and pvc primer.

Wish I had pics. Burnt both hands pretty good and almost the hole front of my shirt along with some chest fur.

As I look back it was pretty darn funny. Boredom+Whiskey=Random Injury.

here's one from another thread::

Re: Help my heads on fire and other shop attrocities

with over 20+ years of welding under my belt,i could begin tell how many time i started my ass on fire,or some FANG starting their ass on fire,i'm well trained in the smell of burning cotton!
one of my first WTF moments was when i was around 13,in a South Dakota ground blizzard, some jack wagon came into the yard where i worked wanting a tranny out of a car{RIGHT NOW!} so i get elected to go fetch it so i get the bright idea to use a concrete saw with a fiber blade to cut it out-the car is on it side.
about 5 minutes into i smell burning cotton--look down & my crotch is in flames without thinking i start to smacking my junk--yep right in the nuts! when i get back to the office every body is pissing themselves!even the guy who wanted the tranny,he asks 'where my tranny?'--my answer
FCK YOU!go get it yourself!
they said they sat & watched the whole damn show from the safety of the office,& were taking bets on what i would do to screw it up. BASTARDS

Was welding one time in a cold shop and all of a sudden I noticed my knees were getting warm. I had lit the fringe on the frayed holey knees of my Levis. Happened twice more before I stopped wearing holey pants to weld.

While changing the fuel pump on an OT car I spilled some gas on the floor. The next job in the bay needed some welding done. I set my shoes on fire as soon as the sparks hit the floor under the car where I was standing. The secretary steps out of the office and starts yelling, completely freaked out. I looked down and started laughing as I could just start to feel the heat on my legs.

Watched a coworker try to burn a customer car to the ground with a can of carb clean trying to locate an intake leak. Bad ignition wire set it off.

A friend got himself a couple weeks ago, soldering under his car, dingleberry in his shirt pocket, he's in the burn unit in SF right now, got his hand, arm & chest, had his first skin graft Monday, at least one more to go. Gonna be OK but lucky.
A old guy that worked for my gramps in the 60's was cleaning up the shop, trying to keep busy in the winter, and in those days everyone just used an open bucket with a brush and some gas, right? Used to be my "job" as a little kid, go outside and wash the parts.. So he's washing away, already washed the bench grinder (!) and desides to clean the upright coal stove in the corner- while it was burning... VERY lucky the bucket was almost empty, got burns on his hand & arm, and could have burned the shop down
That 'ol guy was kind of a sad sack type, a little punchy you could say and not the best of luck, and he went to work for an outfit in town that built potato harvesters as a welder, worked there a couple years, and the simple repetitious work suited him pretty well. So one morning at work he heads off to the crapper, and after a while the other guys noticed he hadn't come back and went looking for him, found him- he had had a heart attack and died on the throne, sitting there peacefully staring ahead

I've set myself on fire something like 5 or 6 times over the years. The worst was getting about a pint of diesel spilled on my brand new Carhartt overalls and burning the left leg on the overalls off up to the knee. My red, sore, swollen leg was hairless for a looong time.


Kinda funny now.
