A lot of us have taken to slathering our ears and necks with SPF 100 sun screen before work starts.
    It's funny, Expat Welder had mentioned the same thing in a thread that you know you're welding with high amperage when the back of your neck is burning and smells like Arby's Roast Beef

    I guess they were doing a pretty large gouging job (or some extreme welding, can't remember exactly what it was)'in excess of like 1000 amps and the building they were doing it in was reflecting it off the walls.

    Oh man, I just realized that color and pattern hat (blue with white polka dots) is gonna probably cause me to get mistaken for a little Hutterite girl. When the woman folk from the local Hutterite Colonies are out in town (amongst the heathen as it were) they all wear a blue head scarf with white polka dots. If you know the code you can tell which sub-sect they belong to by the size of the white polka dots. Clearly I did not think this thru very well when I picked that fabric.

    I can just imagine here in a year or so seeing in the news where the Feds bust some sweat shop set up in a dingy warehouse in Beaumont where Timmy has a bunch of older gals (recruited from local retirement centers) chained to sewing machines churning out these hats.

    All joking a side, there well could be a decent business model here for subcontracting out the making of these hats where every one comes ahead and some jobs get created for some older people that could use a little more income to help with being past the point of regular, main stream employment.

    I kinda thought they might mistake you for the local Grand Wizard.

    As for hiring some seamstresses, the thing to do in these parts would be to hire some nice looking south of the border seńoritas.

    I guess you're just gonna have to buy another one with a different pattern.

    That's a nice looking hat. I don't know how to make that hat yet. You might better go to the source on that one, Doc. That's way more complicated than what I do.

    Tim,

    I have no doubt that when I first wear that at work it's going to be quite the bold industrial fashion statement that a lot of others are going to notice and want to emulate. The anticipation of it showing up in the mail so I can try it on and see how it feels is dam near kill'n me.

    You have some real talent in making those hats. Have you thought about making some do-rags? The one I find around here are made with thin material.

    Well, I sure hope it works out. If not, I'll keep trying till I get it right for you.

    I hadn't considered it. I think I may need to concentrate on getting these down pat first.

    You certainly can. Measure your head circumference with a soft tape, or if you don't have access to that you can use a piece of string and transfer that to a hard tape.

    You know what, I thought I needed more of that to finish your hat, so I went and bought another yard. Then I put it in the pot to boil for the pre-shrink and forgot all about it. Left it in there too long and all the dots turned black. Then I tried to bleach them back white and the whole thing turned brown.

    Those soft tapes can stretch. I would use string or actually, I used 14 gauge stranded wire.

    BTW Timmy, my hat fits, got it today. I should add a quarter inch next time but its good.
