For anyone who welds

I thought I would post this up, I came across it on another forum.

For anyone who welds, a good safety tip. I know I've done it, but I won't be doing it again.

You're welcome. Scary stuff. Funny thing is, I was just using brake cleaner earlier that day for just that. A few of us were.

I've come across that too while TIG welding a bunch of SS water headers at work. That smell that it gives off is horrible. I didn't realize that stuff was that harmful. I stopped using that cleaner a long time ago just cause I couldn't stand the fumes. And it did make me a bit nauseous come to think of it. Glad I dodged those bullets.

Thanks for the article. I haven't ever gotten in the habit of spraying the area I'm about to weld with anything but I'm for damn sure not going to start now.

Lol. I have no idea what I was trying to type there in that couple of sentences. I guess working 12hrs on night shift makes me a little loopy in the head too.

Your welcome. I've passed it around to everyone I know, and posted it in our shop. Easy to do, and you wouldn't even know it.
