  1. I'm also guilty of not always having the guard on, only on 5" grinders i hasten to add, I also find it easier to be accurate and disc can get further into awkward corners, unlike Fridge I rarely wear gloves, however I always wear suitable eye protection. I've used grinders extensively for 40yrs and not had a A&E visit although to be fair I have had a couple of melting cut moments. On a more somber note I have in the last week took a healthy chunk out of the top of my thumb with a wood bench saw, again no gloves but i would argue that if I had had gloves on the damage could have been w

  11. Mig is very convenient, easy enough and good enough for most Landrover work, however arc in general I find more versatile than mig as it's only a stick and current change for different metal types, way easier than changing bottles and reels, but it depends on what you play with, if it is only mild steel then mig is the way to go for most people Having said that I use mig most of the time but I do have a selection of rods to cover, mild steel, stainless, cast iron etc For thick material I think you can burn the weld in better and stronger with arc but that's just my opinion also
