    Re: Damn cheap a$$ work pants.

    About ten years ago I got a good deal on fire proof steel mill pants and jackets ,heavy cotton they would scorch but not burn through ,I think I payed about $2 each and I got about 20 sets I sold them to other welders for $4 each ,and because they were yellow a lot of guys didn't want them but guts working for the gas company would wear them.Not to highjack this thread with when I was on fire stories I was wearing a frayed cotton shirt , my leather jacket was open and it went up in flames ,I didn't feel the heat but smelled the smoke rapped the leathers close and them I felt the heat, a poly pant story I was up on a ladder on top of a boiler cutting out a beam and my leg was getting hot I though I was to close to a steam pipe Pant leg was in flame and melting .If I hadn't been wearing cotton socks the pants would have stuck to me .

    I dont get if it's a job or a " career" but if it's a job I'd be all over the owner to get his shiit together as far as PPE. Otherwise sick OSHA on his dumbascz.
    I have more gear than my guys want to wear in the tropics. Their choices.......but anything is available out of my pocket
