I've been welding for about 10 years now and the auto darkening helmet has got to be one of the best upgrades I could have made from the regular helmet. Makes it so much easier to set up before you pull the trigger when you can see what you are doing and not having to move to pull the helmet up and down as you need it. I also found flux core wire to be a lot easier to manage. I keep it in my welder for the convenience of not having to keep the bottle filled. If I run out of wire I can go to most any HD or Loews and pick up some more wire without having to worry where I am going to find a place to fill the bottle. I have a Lincoln and only use Lincoln wire. I think I have noticed a difference in weld quality on lesser brands. I really find flux core welding very easy. Not sure how the pros feel about using it...
