Also the sensitivity can be adjusted so it doesn't go off and on when TIG welding. It's a very nice hood.
That was my next question. I wear cheater reading glasses for reading (1.50) and I read in one of the posts that wearing these is not advisable for welding. From what I gather, cheater lenses for helmets are available? Everyone using the cheater helmet lenses or just cheater glasses? I used glasses last weekend for a small repair and did not experience any problems.
