If these were my welds I would not be showing these pictures. it was horrible. Some of the welding globs were a half inch think. I eventually gave up and just the "lets" shorter just inside the old adapter

Ya ya, a face shield is cheap. I have one in my shop. At least you have leather gloves on.

Since having Lasiks...I'm a safety goggle junkie.

Got about 10 pairs. some even have tint. Face shield is a must for going under and dealing with rust.

I cut, weld, and grind care free, and am a lucky bitch who'* paid enough visits to the ER to get various fragments removed. Think I'd learn. those freakin things they keep your eye open with while they tweezer are unreal.
