Are they auto-darken ?

The red one is legal for use on the Left coast. Comes in safety red, perfect fit for block heads.

baseball cap.

For a while I was the production manager for a 40 man shop that built parts for the Harley factory, lots of welding robots and Tig welders . I wore a baseball cap and would tilt my head to try to avoid the arc flash. I have lost sight in the center of a bulls eye in my left eye and the outside of the bulls eye for the right eye. I don;t have very good depth perception. I saved them $ 40 k per week by revising the manufacturing process and am now almost blind.

For spot welds, I shield the torch with my hand. Serves two purposes, one it shields my eyes from the arc, and two, holds the torch steady for the weld. When welding, zap, move, zap, move.... a welding helmet can get quite tedious.

Hey I am interested in more about was being produced on the floor. 40 welders in one area working, raises my curiosity antenna.

Thinking is was frames and amazed to read what you describe, trying to form a mental picture of it.

i have one of those Miller auto-darkeners. Love it. i figure the 1/25,000 of sec it takes to darken is ok being that i'm just doing this as a hobby and weld so infrequently. i also use UV glasses underneath.





If i was welding as a profession, then i'd want a conventional helmet.


i don't think people are aware of the potential danger involved here; Maybe they figure, "i just used my hands to block out the light for tacking and it was ok (now), so it's ok." Not realizing that there may be cumulative effects.


DO IT RIGHT, OR DON'T DO IT AT ALL........

welding helmet

I just bought a Lincoln 3350. I have a friend that is a welder for high tech critical stuff and he recommended the 3350, great vision. and has a grind mode. I also have the cherokee chin operated helmet good for sitting at a bench but not when crawling around a piece of machinery on the farm.
In California the company made all of the OEM shorty dual mufflers , and most of the long 3 in tube mufflers. A lot of the exhaust pipes. and kit parts for dealer products. and bicycle Rock Shocks. I started as the quality control manager, then one morning when I got out of my car I could hear something was wrong, the bearings were bad on a auto sander and they had to scrap 200 parts. The company owner told me to be in at 6:00 Monday morning and run the production department. They had been averaging $40 K per week air freighting parts back east. Because of not meeting the schedule. That stopped when I revised the manufacturing system.
