Response to How many of us have done this?
He was working on the dockside at Peterhead harbour back in the 60's when one of the welders stood up, kicked his welding set over the side and legged it. It had barely hit the water when there was an almighty explosion and water fountained up everywhere.
And that folks is why you use a flash-arrestor on acetylene bottles.
I've lost my eyebrows to a can of burning petrol when it reached the perfect stoichiometric ratio.
