I need to get a new auto-darkening helmet for TIG on steel and aluminum from 30-150A. Currently our shop uses a Hornell SpeedGlas helmet which I enjoy using.

I wanted to keep this on the cheap as much as quality allows though- Hobart and Hornell helmets seem to be the big names in auto-darkening, but do I really need one of their helmets or are there other cheaper brands with adjustable shade settings that I would be happy with?

Thx in advance....

Way outta my league man.

On a much more "dumb-a$$" note:
I was welding on my exhaust this past Friday when all of a sudden the helmet didn't fit where I needed to get to. Anyway, to make a long story short, it's amazing how quickley your eyes seem to adjust to welding without a helmet.

~So Sunday afternoon, my doctor said I could take the blindfold off and today I got to stop the antibiotic and numbing drops.

*This ranks right up there in the top 2 dumbest things I've ever done. Don't ask about the other one.

ALWAYS WEAR A WELDING HELMET, YOUR A MORON IF YOU DONT!!!!!!!

My eyes hurt after doing aluminum with anything less than a shade-12 lens. Crazy man.

But we're SOOOOOOOOO curious!

I hope you didn't do too much irreversible damage. What were your symptoms before you went and saw the doc?
