I’m going to do some light mig welding on a wood subfloor.

I’d like to protect the floors with something.

A friend is ripping down a shed with thin gauge sheet metal. He said I can have the metal if I rip it off.

Not sure of the gauge.

Would that suffice to protect the wood subfloor?

Thanks

Ayuh,..... If yer gonna just lay the panels on the floor,.... Overlap 'em,......

Don't want hot sparks dancin' down a seam,.....

Anything that won't burn through will work,.....

Even a wet floor, as noted,....

What's going to protect the floor from you scratching it with the sheet metal?

I would assume in a shop setting the floor would be either unfinished or at least not a fine finish. If I tried to weld something over the hardwood in the house I doubt my wife would let me back inside!
