    Re: Welding Hats

    I just threw this little beanie type hat together, just to see. So, my head measures 13 inches across the top from ear to ear. This hat is 13-1/2 inches.

    The ones I make for myself are 15-1/2 inches, and when you turn them to the side they really grab your head, I guess because you can pull them down further. When you put your hood on, the hat stays put. This little thing slides all around on my head with the bill over my left ear, the way I always wear them. It's sticks much better with the bill straight back.

    How do you wear yours, Steve? Bill to the side or straight back?

    Re: Welding Hats

    I have been wearing this one with the bill forward and flipped up as a hat, when I put my hood on, I spin it around with the Bill down. I'll have to experiment with it at an angle and see how it works.

    Either way. It's insanely comfortable and not too loose or too tight.

    I like it a lot

    You may want to consider having some premade small embroidered cloth tags made up with your company name on them. Just a thin sewn in label so ppl know who made them. It would be a super neat professional touch.

    I always used to cut those labels off when I was buying Comeaux caps.

    Re: Welding Hats

    I dunno where, but I'm sure there's companies that specifically do that. It's just like the decals I have made. They really make my stuff look good and it's free advertisement too.

    Your hats are way too nice not to have them

    I could never get one of those to fit on my head good. They were either too tight or too loose.

    That and the bands were too thick. Your hat has the best of a true welders hat and a thin production type beanie. I hardly know it's on my head and not really being a hat guy, I like that a lot.

    Well, I appreciate the ringing endorsement! I took your advice and just ordered up some labels. I also hired a professional model.

    I think that looks pretty good Tim. You could use a surge stitch to sew it on. Something thin like that won't bind up under head gear either.

    I just figure it will really make them stand out.

    They'll go in between the bill and the crown when I sew them together, and hang down just like in that picture.

    Re: Welding Hats

    As it turns out my theory behind wanting a big billed welding hat to keep both ears (and more of the back of the neck) fully covered has a major flaw. I didn't realize it until now but your "ears" also serve as "cooling fins" for your head. And keeping them both covered up fully really degrades there efficiency.

    That does present a problem.

    You need a Vortec Personal AC like I use down here in the coastal marsh. Hot sumbitch here today.

    Re: Welding Hats

    I wonder if there's a way you could make the flap around the ears removeable?

    Or at least, button or Velcro it out of the way when it's hot? In the winter time, I think that Wild Bill hat would be great for cold outdoor work. When I was working on the farm, one of the places we did work for had a completely exposed holding pen and the wind often came out of the west, across a large cornfield. It would cut thru you like a knife and when it was below zero, that was no fun at all working out there.

    That hat would have been great for that kind of work. Keep your parts covered up and still provide a welding hat you could don a thicker one over easily once you took your hood off.

    Might have to look at having you make me a modded version of it Tim.

    Think I'll have to have you make one for my son too. He digs the RR dots!

    I wonder if sewing in one of those cooling bandanas would help to alleviate some of the heat issue.

    Mom made a few hats with fleece, they were pretty nice. I don't really need them much now that I'm in hell.

    Of course if he'd left the hat oversized, he could have just worn one of those underneath. You planned it that way right, knowing he'd get too hot otherwise.

    Even the unlined one like you made Dave would be nice to keep the wind off your face, neck and ears. That was one thing I never liked about those Comeaux hats, they were too thick. I sent that material to you Thursday. You should get it next week.

    I will keep an eye out for other interesting patterns.

    I would just sacrifice an old dress, but that stretchy material catches fire and burns like a mutha.
