Bet that orange paint you've got isn't helping :(

ouchies dude.

apparently teabags (used, cold) on the eyes helps.

I'd just sleep.

Cold tea bags with a damp flannel over it.
Make sure they are a little bit damp. Slices of cucumber works too - it's not the ingredients but the moise cooling effect that you are after.

Slow cooking of the retina ;), it takes time cos it's the healing that hurts, not the injury

I know . . . back in the day it was ALL we had :D

But MIGs (and TIGs) kinda spoil us . . . sparking up an 'old-fashioned' rod/arc welder was like a step back in time yesterday :lol:

Must buy a MIG ;)

Bri
Agreed with you there, my mates just bought a tig welder cant wait for a go of that.
