cheater magnifier.

I bought a couple of the magnifier lens that fit inside the rect gas welding goggles and used some aluminum A C duct tape to fasten it inside my welding helmet. that is a lot better than reading glasses. Sometimes when crawling under farm machinery the sensor on the helmet doesn't get the arc flash to turn it on .. and sometimes bright sunlight trips it before I strike an arc, and after welding for 55 years I need a good light shining on the work to see enough to get a good weld.
