there are both still in my head.............unless I spot a hot chick

all kidding aside my eye has been okay but I havent welded or grinded in two weeks now..........I think that its a mixture of allergies, and a mental thing........had a piece of slag get in my eye a few years ago and still to this day im parinoid about getting crap in my eye.......(physcosemitic)

but thanks to the people that have supported me on sft.com I have been able to turn something I enjoy doing into something that I can make some $$$ with.......not much but its a foot in the door.......

maybe I will even be able to buy a tig unit........(damn the eyes I got a tig)

my buddy damn near threw a fit when I told him I quit welding.......kinda gave me a boot in the a##...........


dawg

we will see how it goes..........I have a demand now that I must supply

yeah dawg you got to watch out for your eyes...around about 4 years ago i was under a trailer welding a piece on ....ran the bead and lifted the shade to chip but couldn't find the chipper....raised my shield to look for the chipper......just as i found the chipper and turned to look at the weld a piece of slag popped off the weld and caught me in the right eye(now this is serious cuz this is my shooting eye) ....it burned and scared it ....now i have a very slight dot in my field of vision...it doesn't effect my sight but i can see it.....got to be careful

And that is why you should wear safety glasses under you hood.

ron, I agree with you 100% since day one I have worn safety glasses underneath the helmet...... the day I caught that slag it got behind my safety glasses.........

one other time I was climing the ladder and caught the corner of the s.s. hood I was installing and broke the shade in my helmet......thank god I run a front and rear clear sheild in my helmet..... same job had the ground come off and hit me in safety glasses (luckley I had them on or I would have lost my eye

25 bolts -$17.25

6 metal stakes $15.00

2 arbys beef and cheddars $4.00

made 16 today...........welded, ground down, primed .............bout 2.5 hours

I make $11 each and clear about $9.00 for each peice after my expences........one takes about 30 seconds to weld, 30 seconds to grind and 3 coats of paint...........

16 X $9apiece = $144 gross. Take out 30% for taxes leaves you with about $100 profit. If you sell all 16 every day 5 days a week for 52 weeks a year = $37,440.

Now hire you three illegals working for $20/day and you can clear 100K without even working. LOL

Dawg, those Beef & Cheddars are NOT tax deductable.
You can however deduct 25ยข a mile for material fetching.
If the Arby stop was on the way home you really shouldn't deduct for the mileage from Arbys to home either.
IRS just loves to Joey with you arteests.
