Is this a helmet air filter????

I ran across this pic in grapo's journal. At first I thought, cool, a built in air filter on his welding helmet. But then I though, wait a minute. That's just an open bottom welding helmet, what good would a filter do. So my question is, what's the purpose of that gizmo on the helmet and how does it work?

It looks to me to be a wire feed container attached to the handle of the welder. I do not believe it is anything attached to the welding helmet.

I just read the text in grapo's journal. It is a spool gun for welding aluminum.

Ahhhhhhhh, my old eyes were tricking me there (feeling a little sheepish now - to quote Schnitz). Next thing you know I won't even be able to read the Hooters logo on those T shirts.
