We need some videos of Mac and Zap doin some of this trick welding :jester:
Sorry Zap but I think its a tougher guy that holds the filler in his teeth....wouldnt wanna short that rod out :eek:
I'm just starting to tig and use gloves on both hands just because I always wear gloves on both hands when doing stick or mig. I don't seem to have to much trouble feeding the filler with the glove on but I'll have to try it without a glove to see if my welds improve any.
I don't use gloves for UV protection, the main reason I wear gloves is its pretty painful when you pick up a hot piece of steel or rest your hand on something you just welded :blob2:

I´ve been through that,....when learning oxy-acetilene....
Ever heard the old say "the man is the only one who falls 3 times on the same thing"?
Well....I felt like about 1,000 and still sometimes I touch the "just welded" parts.
Mann that SUCKS
