What's the easiest way to show your characters hard at work fixing/repairing/building something? Show them welding, of course! Also, it will always be showy, sparky, ''manly'' welding, using electric arcs or oxyacetylene: Precision soldering irons are for wussies. The manly man at the right is cutting steel, probably *before* building something.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''TheLooneyTunesShow'' episode "Peel of Fortune". There are flashes of arc welding from the garage and Daffy is shown wearing a welding mask just before he unveils his latest invention... [[ItsBeenDone sliced bread!]]

* ''Film/IronMan'' has Tony Stark welding while working on his car, and on the armour. ''Iron Man 2'' has Whiplash welding in a scene.
** At least it's not the ''only'' thing Tony does -- his various construction montages involved plenty of things melting, RapidFireTyping, a holographic version of CAD, and, once, him hammering a faceplate into shape with a sledgehammer. Played with, as he's also seen soldering something on the leg of the Mark II suit in the original movie.
