What to wear for welding during plumbing?
They make leather ap[rons for welding, you can find them at any welding supply store. If, on the off chance that you are talking about cold soldering, then you don't really need any PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Some gloves might save you the discomfort of touching a hot pipe, but other than that normal clothing is fine.

Thanks for the feedback!
Wouldn't that depend on the type of plumbing your doing? If I am welding I would wear my welders mask and my welding clothes to prevent myself from being… burnt by hot slag or X rays given off by the arc If I am doing sewer and drain cleaning I would not wear loose fitting clothes as it could get tangled in the sewer cables If I am working JOBBING then CLEAN uniforms are in order, If I am working new construction or alterations then coverall's are the dress of the day with a loop for my striker
only if you are looking to damage your eyes and get wicked sunburn to the rest of your face
By using insulating gloves and using gas welding instead of electric arc welding.
Preheating can assist the welding penetration on materials with high thermal conductivity such as thick aluminum sections or even some steels. This reduces the heat sink… affect (rapid cooling) of the deposited weld by the surrounding cold metal. Preheating also significantly reduces the rapid cooldown of the item post welding. Contrary to many beliefs, it is difficult if not impossible to overheat metals but many metals (such as carbon steels) can become brittle if cooled rapidly. They can also lock in post weld stresses that can compromise the engineering qualities expected. Preheating builds up heat in the metal and it takes longer for it to cool. In affect, preheating is also a portion of the postheating formula. In most welding code applications, carbon steels and some other metals require preheating prior to welding to be in compliance.
Vents are run through the roof, shower and tub drains are installed, sink drains are stubbed out of walls and/or floors, washing machine box is installed, cold and hot water l…ines are stubbed out of walls and/or floors, sill-cocks are installed on exterior of house, and nail plates are placed over pipes going through studs so they will not be penetrated by nails or screws. Basically anything pertaining to plumbing that is inside a wall or cannot be done after drywall, tile, or flooring is installed.

When you heat a piece of metal so that part of it melts, that melted part can stick to another piece of metal and when it cools and hardens, the two pieces of metal will be co…nnected by a very solid bond, effectively making them a single piece. That is welding.
When the molten metal of the weld pool reacts with the oxygen in the air. Typically, in arc welding a shielding gas is used. Usually argon as it does not react because it's a …halogen. If welding iron or steel, oxidation causes the build up of iron oxide which is rust.
Indoor plumbing was invented long before World War 2. According to the related link below, "The first patent for the flushing toilet was issued to Alexander Cummings in 1775."… but "Until 1840, indoor plumbing could be found only in the homes of the rich and the better hotels." World War 2 did not begin until 1939.
Some preventive measures include : back step welding : pausing between each weld bead : applying a heat sink close to the weld : using smaller electrodes.
Electrons flowing across an air gap produce an arc. The resistance built up that is needed to push these electrons across the gap produces the heat. This same resistance cause…s the electrodes to get hot.
5O2 + 2C2H2 --> 4CO2 + 2H2O + Q oxygen + acetylene -> carbon dioxide + water + heat-energy
Well...there were kinds of indoor plumbing. There were outhouses during the civil war, those were most common. The Civil war also had a kind of toilet that flushed, so they di…d have plumbing. It worked by running water that lead to a lake or ocean, so only people near water had toilets instead of outhouses. P.S. they did not have light bulbs until after the civil war...well at least not mass produced.
no. why would it anyways? its just like anormal hat haha. silly thoughts ppl have
Plumbing is the art and technique of installing pipes, fixtures, and fittings. Answer 2 Plumbing, from the Latin plumbum for lead, is the skilled trade of w…orking with pipes, tubing and plumbing fixtures for drinking water systems and the drainage of waste. A plumber is someone who installs or repairs piping systems, plumbing fixtures and equipment such as water heaters. The plumbing industry is a basic and substantial part of every developed economy due to the need for clean water, and proper collection and transport of wastes. Plumbing also refers to a system of pipes and fixtures installed in a building for the distribution of potable water and the removal of waterborne wastes. Plumbing is usually distinguished from water and sewage systems, in that a plumbing system serves one building, while water and sewage systems serve a group of buildings or a city.
