        Ao weld cool cobalt blue lens

        For a shade 10 blue lens I guess it's for tig welding... That's what I use . It is worth 450-550$ .. I have a shade 12 I could sell but I want 375 and it has a little spatter and a chip in the upper left corner none of the blemishes matter you can see great out of it

              cobalt blue lenses are neither exotic nor expensive Sellstrom makes them in shades #6 and #10 for about $32...

              Be aware that blue is not suitable for TIG welding... it will not filter out ultraviolet... the blue was intended to filter out the bright orange of molten metal in a foundry, glassblowers molten glass and some gas welding where an orange sodium flare occurs...

              they would be dangerous to the eyes if used for electric arc welding like TIG, MIG or stick, where lots of ultraviolet is produced...

              Want to get rid of the Orange Glow? Cobalt Blue products are just what you need!
              Sellstrom now offers cobalt blue protective eyewear, faceshield, welding goggle and 2x4 filter plate lens (in both shade 6 and 10) to meet your unique work environment needs. Cobalt blue products diffuse the orange glow that strong sodium emissions generally produce, allowing the user to see and perform more efficiently. These products would be ideal in gas welding applications for aluminum and cast iron as well as in metal, gas and glass furnace operations. All cobalt blue products meet and/or exceed ANSI Z87.1 Standards.

              For more information on any of these new products, feel free to give us a call at 800.323.7402. Product is in stock, ready to go.

                Just to let u honey I may only be the wife but I'm not dumb and I be been around the industry long enough to know that the ao (American Optic) cobalt blue lens that I'm looking for and referring to is both highly sought after and "exotic" as u called it. The reason for the high prices on the lenses is bc they are so rare and very hard to come by someone who is even willing to part with theirs! They don't make the original lens I'm speaking of anymore. I'm not looking for a knock off or blue lens googles, I want to find him a true ao cobalt blue shade #10 welding lens that is in good condition

                      (virtually hugs back) thanks. And no I didn't see that one. But I'm proud to say that I found one on eBay that I just bought him for $91.00!! Don't pass out y'all, lol. The guy selling it didn't know what he had. He had the wrong paper cover for it. He thought it was an old Lincoln electric super visability lens, and under priced it!! After reviewing the pictures and zooming in on the details I saw ao-12 engraved on it!! Needless to say I desperately watch it for a week, won it, and now it's on it's way here!! Yey!! We didn't really want a #12 we were looking for a #10 but at that price I wasn't passing it up!!!

                        Thanks to everyone! Im so excited, I just can't wait until it comes in and he opens the package and sees/holds his very own ao cool blue lens for the first time!! Now I know I'm a little partial but I think I'm the coolest ole' lady ever!! Lol!

                          In my reserch...

                          ...I saw reference to some that were just for smelting and such where if used (for welding) they could do harm...I didn't find how you would tell the difference but might be worth a Google. Enjoy and I hope your Ebay experience goes better than mine.

                            Yea. This guys was selling off his step fathers estate. He openly admitted that his step father was the welder and he didn't know anything about it. Win for us... Lol

                              O and btw, don't quote me on this but if I'm not mistakin the shade number is how u can tell what it's use for... Ex: some for welding, some for cutting, and some for smelting, ect. I think... U use a #5 shade for smelting.
