How many of you guys like to weld without a hood? Im usually pretty good about wearing one but yesterday I didnt. I was shaving a tailgate on a customers truck, welding the perimiter in a series of tacks, as to not warp the piss out of it. I got it all welded up and ground down without too much warpage and decided to call it a day Last night, some buddys and I went out to partake in some live music and adult beverages, and about time it was time to call it a night my eyes were burning like hell I tried to play it off, as if it was the smokey bar that was gettin to my eyes. A couple hours later I was in the ER with some serious pain, beggin for someone to go ahead and cut my eyeballs out I didnt have a clue why the hell my eyes felt like they were full of sand untill the nurse asked me if I was a welder AAHHHHHH SHIT!!!!!! After 15 years of bodyshop welding, I FINALLY DID IT!!!!! Got me some flash burn!! I will never do this again!!! EXTREMELY PAINFULL FELLAS!!!!!!!
