  • Welding Helmets

    Hey I've been looking for a normal welding helmet(non autodarkining) but I am lookin for some that have the different styles and such but all i have found them in was auto darkining ones? I know jackson makes them but i havent been able to find someone that sells them or found them on their site. Does anyone know of somewhere to get a nonauto darkining hood? Thanks

              I use my speedglass a work. bought if a few years ago for $300. Now, problem is it's so tapered towards the bottom, I can't wear my respirator underneath it. So I go back to my 951P f(I think)rom Gaspro. I like it, 'cause it has a large window. I use shade 10 lens. cost $40 regular, $25 during the tent sale. Next tent sale this Aug 4-5th. Hope to get my tig setup then...The gaspro and Air Liquide shops have a good supply of non-darkening helmets. My co-workers use the smaller window, but has the flip up window that is clear behind, so they can grind without taking off the whole helmet.

                    why cant you use an auto hood in vo-Tec. ?? as long as its cirtified you should be able to use it in school.

                      Wow thats kinda wierd that they dont allow auto darkening helmets at vo-tech schools. When i was taking welding in college the instructors advised us to go and get an auto darkener just to make life easier and to get our structural tickets a little easier as well. Kinda comes back at ya though cause now welding in the field all my welding is done with fixed shade helmet... oh well

                        I'm not shure why votec schools don't allow auto darkiners but I don't think my local one allows them either. I would have to check though because they have a jobsiting thing that they host at the votec for dif. careers to learn whats out there and they have a booths for their classes. Thats the reason why I would like to not use auto darkining. I own a auto darkining flame design helmet that works really well but since some jobs and schools don't allow them I would rather stay with a fixed shade. Thanks guys

                          i would think it much easyer to see what all is going on when being shown how to do something as it would all be black untill the arc strikes, where as if its an auto dark you can see how he sets up to strike and start the arc, not just the arc as it lights.
                          the auto hood would be a great help in a lerning inviorment. i would want my students to have one and if i were the student i would defenetly want an auto hood.

                            I tried googling the company name, but nothing comes up.

                            The name of the company that makes the skull, gorilla, werewolf type helmets is "Hoodlums". I met the guy that owns the company a few years ago at the AWS show in Cleveland. He's a real charming fellow.


                            As far as a standard no-auto darken the Jackson Shadow helmet can be purchased at almost any welding supply company.

                            Part #0744-0504 for color black. Also available in red, blue, green. Pricing runs about $40 and comes with shade 10 lens. Pricing runs about $40 and comes with shade 10 lens.

                              I'd buy the black and paint it yourself Get masking tape and make your own flames! Good practice for a future project that may come up
