If you do a search, this comes up fairly often and you should be able to find some first hand accounts of members welding. ARC is the main type of welding we can't do.

Welding... so far...

I did a few hours of MIG welding on Thursday and Sunday... I'm not dead yet. I plan on doing arc welding a few days a week and for a number of months starting in April. General rule is keep the arc 24 inches away and don't loop the cables over or around you. Has anyone ever heard of anyone actually having a problem welding with a modern pacemaker?

I finished 29th in London in 2 hours 20 minutes 30 seconds which is my fastest with or without a device so clearly it didn’t slow me down ! I had no problems apart from some slight chaffing on my scar - more Vaseline next time.
