I have had an implanted spinal cord stimulator for almost 3 years and was given dire warnings about going near magnetic/electric fields from such devices even those anti shoplifting devices especially when my stim switched on.
Never had problems using my 150 Mig the Plasma cutter and 3 HP compressor at all though it does sometimes activate airline security devices.
Good luck and try it a step at a time you will quickly fiind out any side-effects.
Note getting close to live HT ignition systems is more dangerous with or without these things _________________ Phil
I had a healths scare a few months back,at one time I thought I was on the way out.
I was given a reprieve and though slower can still grovel about under cars although as ever the reason why is still often a mystery.
I've a mate who had a pacemaker fitted some time ago,as a previous poster suggests he carries on welding with an oxy actelene set up and uses mainly air tools. He says he feels better than he has done in years,I sincerely hope you can echo his sentiments in years to come. _________________ Imperial tools for older cars

Have you discussed your concerns with your surgeon? I had a pacemaker fitted in June 2010. I had a chat with the surgeon about the MIG welding and he suggested I try welding before first check-up, making a note of the time, date, etc. Did this and all was OK - the PM was unaffected by the electromagnetic field from my Clarke 120E on full power.
