A cautionary Tale :welding under the vehicle: fire
so this does not involve my 110, but it could have, and it muight be of value to you DIY guys
so I am welding sheet metal patches on the holes on my 72 Porche 914 (volkswagon in disguise) I started thinking I had 6 holes, now I'm at 12, and will be rebuilding the bottom back 1/4th of the tunnel before I'm done with thew welding.
Car is up on the lift, I'm welding between the rear of the pan, and the bottom of the firewall - Ironic , as it turned out.
So my left shoulder is getting hot - that seems odd. I stop welding, and there seems to be more smoke than normal. Luckily, since i had already cut out the bottom of the tunnel, I happen to see flames inside the cabin - weird, I have it stripped, and just got done painting it.
so now : shut down the welder, move it from under the lift, lift the lift a few inches, that allows me to pull the safety catch cables, then finally lower it down till I can see inside. full blown campfire on the floor.
Turns out I had left a nylon bag fiull of my rags inside, as well as a roll of masking paper and they were fully engulfed. Threw on the welding blanket, shut it down pretty quick, but it shook me up a bit. I guess I'm done for the night.
Be carefull out there guys!
