Default New welding helmet

I went and bought myself an early Christmas present, a new Speedglas SL welding helmet. It weights about 13 ozs, is adjustable from shade 9-12, and has adjustablity to set the distance front to back, to move the lense away from your glasses. It fits tight to the side of your face, to limit back lighting, and had the new style headgrear.

Your taking all the fun out of unwrapping the toys on Xmas morning Platy'. Unless of course your going to get the black leather jacket with the jet pack attached under the tree in a few weeks.

Nice helmet.

Sweet! Are you gonna get it dirty?

We had a guy in welding class with a speedglass helmet who refused to learn stick because he didn't want his space helmet all dinged up by astroids. Funny part was he was a paid professional TIG welder. When it came to TIG, the student was teaching the class. We're all like WTF? Why did you take Introduction to Welding? Answer: He wanted an easy elective class to fulfill his major.

And I thought my 9000x was ugly as hell when I bought it....

I guess I should get use to the look. Most likely in my future very soon.

Absolutely, right after the picture I started to use it, I don't abuse the tools, I buy, but will they will be used to the limit of what they are designed for, except for the dog, nothing in this house lives here for free.
