Feed the Bead

The TIG glove, which I've dubbed "Feed the Bead," is finished. It's not perfect, and I'm already working on a new and improved version, but it serves its purpose.

I finally got myself a YouTube account so I could show y'all how I use this thing. The #1 straight in the video is a bit thicker than the wire I use, but it's close enough for the demo.



The new version is going to have more coverage on the hand, and be tighter, especially on the thumb.

Yesterday, I took a break from welding for a few minutes and worked on the glove. One of the instructors mock-scolded me for knitting when I was supposed to be welding. Once I told him what I was making, he encouraged me to continue knitting. It probably helps that I'm ahead of the rest of my class by about four assignments.
