I did my first two bikes wearing gloves and a welding jacket because the space I was using mostly catered to welders and required it for using the torch. Now I'm moving on to my own equipment and am wondering about it.
Looking at pictures of pro's silver-brazing bikes, I don't see any gloves or jackets. Is that just because it looks better on camera or is it unnecessary? Any tips other than "don't grab the red metal"?
