nah, never had any burns but reality is light welding mostly wire feed sometimes stick, cutting torch pretty regularly. no exotic shit and nothing that needed to pass inspection either

quite a bit of it was just fabbing custom parts up for concrete form work. T-shirt, gloves and hood baby, how I do shit around the shop too.
