    Hi All

    Can anyone tell me the difference between a fire blanket and a welding blanket?

    Apart from the cost - a fire blanket appears to be significantly cheaper!!!

    Some plank welded a patch over the wing bolts and now I can't remove the wing :clapping: need to grind out the patch but it's inside the car!

    Many thanks

    Rob

    Welding blankets are generally a lot thicker and harder wearing material.

    Fire blankets are ideal for putting out a chip pan fire, but drop a bit of weld on one or gring against it for more than a few seconds and youll have a hole.
