    I don't like that there are two ground clamps being used one at each end.

    I remember more than one occasion of getting flash burn. I used to weld Tuna Towers on some big boats. 38'-64'.Hanging off the side welding over head with a very touchie micro switch taped to the torch head on a rocking boat and no auto darkening hat it was hard not to flash your self.
    I used wet tea bags to take the sand paper sting out. Worked good but left a funny stain on my face.

    Vicks, smeared very thinly on your cheek bones and lower eyelid right before bed will pull the sting out of flash burned eyes.

    I was working on a job and there was this older guy (was a college prof. once) was welding some iron stair railings with no helmet. When I asked him shouldn't he be wearing a helmet he said no "I 'm used to it". Same guy was using 12 ga. romex as an extension for his welder (220 V)!
