Default welding helmet, auto darkening, amazon


$52. I have a similar cheap one and it works just fine. Only tip is to add some foam to the back of the head band for more comfort.

A better tip is to buy a set of Jackson replacement head gear and retrofit it in there.

I'll stick with my 3M Speedglas when I need an auto-darkener. Otherwise, I use a shade 10 4x5 gold lens in my old school flip-down.

I have a Miller auto darken hood with grind shield. Love it a lot. Kind of spendy but it's worth its weight in gold. https://www.amazon.com/Welding-Helme...SLL&ref=plSrch
