i cant find any pics of mine, just a black flip down large window mask
Never had that problem, but I haven't had to weld out in the cold yet either that I can recall.Those Jackson hoods w/ the big ole windows look convenient. Especially for awkward positions. Do you guys hafta hold your breath so they don't fog up?
Nice Ballistic sticker.Big Window Jackson halo mask with Boss wide view auto-lens. Bought it back in november and no complaints so far. Big window is an awesome feature, I think this mask is the largest auto-dark lens available:
Mask is very light as well.
Well I woulda got a Speedglass like yours (those are awesome hoods), But it was big $$$ compared the the Elite (this was almost 3-4 years ago).... I think it was at least a $200 difference between the 2 when I was pricing 'em out... maybe even more than that. The Speedglass I was drooling over had that "grinding" shade (or something like that), so you could use it for plasma cutting and as a face shield for grinding (right?),.... awesome features. Miller was probably the 2nd best choice.... plus thier auto-shade windows are slightly larger than most...even the Speedglass... but not those Jacksons above.ive noticed a majority of ppl are using a miller hood of some kind. what are your reasons for choosing that over say a Speedglas? price? window size? comfort? weight?
i only ask because i got my helmet for a price of a new set of batteries so i never really researched anything. it kinda just fell in my hands. i thought my HF helmet was nice till i welded with this.
I hear using Brasso on your used lens covers can clean them up quite nicelyi want to, but i cant justify spending the $30 for the kit.
i wish i would just find some clear poly carbonate and make my own lense.
When did you buy it? Is that lens standard for the Elites now? I'm jealous. I could really use that grind mode for plaz.I bought the Miller because I had one before and liked it. My Grandpa had a fancy Speedglas that I used a few times. It had all the options my Miller has for an extra $100 more, was a little heavier, slightly smaller lens, and I just thought it looked funny. Nothing against Speedglas, just not for me. I looked into getting one before I bought the helmet above. Was going to cost me $375 locally. I bought my Miller for $280 locally. It has grind mode so that you can use grinders and plasma cutters while wearing it. I use it for plasma, it's great. It also has what they call X-Mode. It's for outdoor and low amp welding. It's pretty cool. It can tell the difference between sunlight and the weld light, so it doesn't black out every time you move your head. And it's nice for low amp TIG, because it senses the frequency before the arc starts. I've never been flashed with this helmet, except for the first time I forgot to turn it on. You learn quick though.
I bought a Miller Helmet, and I own two Lincoln welders. I don't like their machines, but I don't think you can beat their helmets.
or how often you do overhead. i did it for like 2 hrs and that ****ed up my cover for sure.I hear using Brasso on your used lens covers can clean them up quite nicely
... any one tried this before?.
I only change out my plastics after it starts impeding my vision. How often ya change them depends largely on how good you can set up your machines & keep the spatter down.
