Working on the Chain Tang

Electric arc welding clevis pins on Port Askaig Pier, Islay. Note that you should never, ever look directly at the arc as the intense, invisible blast of ultra violet light can cause painful and lasting eye damage. I think I appreciated the efforts of the other workman to get in the way and protect me in spite of my protestations that I knew all about arc eye from my own pitiful attempts at welding. I used the excellent EVF on the Fuji X100 to shield me.
