We have always heard the phrase “Safety first.” And for a risky job like welding, we do not want to take safety for granted. In welding jobs, heavy metals are melted with a torch, and hazardous gases are produced.
The protective gear shields us from any potential and irreversible damage to health. Today, we will look into one such protective equipment, which is welding shirts long sleeves. We have come up with a comprehensive list of welding shirts that you should be considering to buy before getting into the job.

Hi, my name is Gregory! I have been welding practically all of my life and love it. As I have gotten older I have started to weld less and less, so in order to continue my love for welding I created this website. I like to write about my experiences and help you all become welders. I hope that you enjoy the site!
