Eish welding barefoot...
Not nice when something hot falls in between your toes.
I learned, eventually.

Also do not weld with shorts. A suntan burn due to welder on the inner thigh is not something I want again. No thank you

Other than that, nice progress.

Thats why I am standing on a rubber mat to avoid shock and I am almost always walking barefoot so that morning I didn't take shoes to the place where we were working.....And once I have seen Louis taking pictures I told him we going to get comments on bare foot welding.....LOL

don't think that it should be a problem. 6mm glass at 5cm bracing will be quite strong. tank wont expand with that type of bracing
