Plus on top of that all that heavy clothing and boots makes treading water a difficult task until some one can get a line to you to fish you out.

    No that tool belt is not a quick release belt. It looks something like this one, with a thick pad.

    That there is an endangered species

    Not because its stupid or dangerous but because some insurance guy sitting behind a desk or college trained safety rep is going to do all he can to make that an "un-safe work practice"

    You can only make things safer to some extent. Even with all the money in the world, there are tasks which are and will always be a bit more risky than others. Take working on live high voltage lines... THAT's interesting....

    Great pictures everyone!

    Yeah and in the process come up with an even risker way of doing some thing. I've seen that happen once or twice when some one who really doesn't know what they're doing gets put in charge.

    Re: Bridge welding

    Looks good, I have welded many bearing pads on bridge girders. 5/32 fine 1 pass, or 1/8 can get it done. Depends on your inspector and how tight he is holding you the the WP. Tip, if your welding overhead and your dripping, chances are you are holding to long and arc. You can do nice work with 5/32 even overhead but you may find to your surprise you may want to turn the amps up, push the rod right in and move right along as long as you are not under cutting.

    I have a jurisdictional question. What do the pile bucks and/or carpenters get to weld and hang, and where does it become the work or the ironworkers via jurisdictional agreement?

    ...every time I get dripped on during overhead welding it's from a momentary long-ish arc. I don't weld overhead very often, so I forget to push it up there sometimes...
