Welding blankets

Saturday, February 18 2017, 05:48 PM
If all I have for a starter welding crafting shop is a shed with a wood floor, what about covering the wood floor with welding blankets? When the weather is nice, will need them anyway as my "outside" shop is a pine woods with no shortage of fuel to accidentally start on fire. Just curious as to what you seasoned welding veterans think of using welding blankets indoors on a wood floor.

    Not a good idea for the floor. A few sheets of cement board on the floor and seal the seams. Use the blankets on the walls as they are fire retardant not fire proof.

    Also keep a few fire extinguishers handy at all times.

    In my opinion you would be better off covering your floor with an inch of dirt.

    Or step outside and pour some concrete!

    Much cheaper than fire insurance or rebuilding after the fire!
