  • Miller Performance Series helmet problem

    My girlfriend got a Miller Performance Series helmet and she's been having problems with the outer protective lens fogging up. Theres no rubber seal between the auto shade cartridge and the outer protective lens, should there be? Has anyone else had this problem? I personally think this is a poor design on millers part, but praxair did say they have seen this problem before. They said the helmet was fine, I'm looking for other opinions now.

    Thanks

    Chance

      That gasket prevents dirt and crap getting in from the outside. I'm saying there should be a gasket between the auto shade cartridge and the inside of the helmet if that makes sense. I'll have to Jimmy something up and make it work

        It sounds like you are trying to stop dirt/dust from getting to the control side of the lens.In that case you will have to make something yourself.

          check the exploded poarts diagram in the manual.
          I've got a hobbiest pro and there's a big rubber gasket in there that prevents such a thing.
          Did you get this unit second hand?
