I guess there's an advantage at building the forges at waist height. The down side is, if you have your anvil too close, you have a habit of sicking your butt in the fire.

whenever i buy a certain brand of charcoal -- it shoots charcoal rockets at me. One time it landed a pea sized peice of glowing charcoal down my welding glove and into my pinky slot.. im waving my hand everywhere trying to see if my gloves on fire from the outside -- all the mean while cooking my pinky frank... That sucked.

Wait until you get one falling down your neck into your clothing, falling across your back into you pants. The results looks a lot like 20ies jazz dancing :)

Speaking of splattering molten flux..........

One Monday I was a work in a short sleeve shirt and there were all these little round red blister marks all over my forearms. One of the electricians asked if I had a rash. I told her no, just that I had lit myself on fire over the weekend.

You know it's been a long day at the forge when you wipe your brow... and your eyebrows all but wipe off in a smudge of char and little white burnt pieces. Not as easy to notice since you dont smell it as much when it's above your nose and it happens =D

I don't have much facial hair but it really sucks when forge welding sparks end up getting in there. I'm just happy that my hair hasn't caught fire yet, it's about shoulder length now.

Yeah, I keep mine braided most of the time and I tuck the braid inside my shirt when at the forge.........
