Just short message I thought might be useful to some of the more inexperenced members. This is a subject that you don't think about until it happens to you. Just so you know any uncover skin exposed to arc welding rays will be sunburned. This is especially true with MIG and TIG welding. Because there is less smoke involved with gas shielded welding process. I think? I always use a bandana or old T-Shirt around my neck to cover bare skin. Long sleeve shirts a must. Protect yourself with leather sleeves, or old cotton jacket.

Being an experienced welder i would always advise wearing proper overalls . I herd of a chap who used to weld all the time wearing a t shirt sadley he got a cancerous growth under his arm. As a result he died as it was not descoverd until it had spread around his body. so always stay safe!
