    I understand the confusion. People think that the Op runs the thread, but honestly he lost control at around pg 1,184. He recently git demoted 1 more spot because he stopped using his boat shoes with mid rise black socks.

    I've been doing more in position welding stuff with like the sliders, and a coverall does seem like a really useful bit of ppe when you're getting rained on. I need to upgrade my welding jacket from the $5 walmart sweatshirts lol

    I miss the days you would weld on cardboard boxes, wearing khaki shorts, flip flops, & an old navy tshirt 2 sizes to big for you.

    If you haven’t already, get a skull cap too. Also wear clear safety glasses under your hood for extra protection both from UV and slag, and in-ear plugs to keep from burning a hole in your ear drums.

    I've been wearing a baseball cap backwards, but need to just pull the trigger on the skull cap because the brim can get in the way. I did start wearing plugs after welding with my head sideways for the sliders and I got a respirator which made a much bigger difference than I was expecting. clean air is very nice

    Worth its weight in gold. I originally got it from burning my scalp doing cmc’s.

    For glasses I wear these. I bought a pack in 2020 and still have half of the box. I’m always wearing them in the garage and just throw them away when they get scratched. Impact resistant (which I’ve tested) and block UV rays. If you accidentally flash yourself or have it reflecting up under your hood from a light colored shirt, this’ll protect your eyes from getting sunburned.

    I love the internet, it's so handy. On the tundra, I just had to make a simple jumper and now one of my power outlets is always hot. I'm going to steal the dometic from betty and put it in the tundra for long drives and I wanted the fridge to stay powered when I park for a bit.

    Should bust out the Amex and pick up a National Luna 125L for the Tundy. You could fit your whole costco trip in it!

    Bold of you to assume I go grocery shopping and don't eat all my meals at CFA.

    I honestly haven’t a clue, sorry. If I remember tomorrow when I’m in front of my laptop I’ll do some digging.

    We were allowed to take some leave since we've been deployed since last July. I'm back in Japan again and will be here until probably Julyish.
