            ?, Why did you go with a speedglass? I have never used one but they seem way over priced!

              Bert, I tried a few different ways to clean them looking for the best method. I did sand blast one, chemical stripped one, and several different wire wheels on 4.5" grinder on the others. Each way had their pluses and minuses. One of those were my grandfathers and he's been dead since 1971. Dave

                Dave,
                so which method do you think you'll stick with?

                Weld13,
                I liked the speedglass, larger window, fast speed, looks, etc. Problem, is it's tapered at the bottom and I found out I can't wear my respirator underneath, won't fit. Next one will be a Miller Elite (I think), 'cause mines only has 2 sensors and the Elite has 4. When I tig, helmet turns off and on. I tried my friends miller and it doesn't do that. Tent sale is this weekend, but after fixing my wife's van, I can only get my tig setup and not the helmet

                  I'll have to work with whichever method fits the particular application, probably use a combination of them all.Dave

                            Well buddy, I have a LOT of bills, and just paying the minimum on them
                            Told my wife after I get a certain amount of stuff, the rest of my paycheck will go towards bills and if I want more play money, I'll have to make/weld and sell stuff. that's why I'm collecting info on everything you guys do! I REALLY would like to make the POW/MIA that fun4now did ......

                              Thats part of the reason I'm doin the horseshoe stuff so I can make some money to finish projects cause could do a lot with the right materials but don't have the $. I think I might work on finishing my go cart tomorrow but am going to rework some stuff first.

                                Bert, if you have a plasma cutter the POW*MIA flag holders i make are easy just time consuming.
                                i just took a pic of my flag and then blew it up to the size i wanted, printed it and used carbon papper to transfer the design. then an engraver so it would stay wile cutting and then cut it.
                                i have the BWE (in the pic of my old cart) and like it a lot. no problems when TIGing with it or using it out in the sun. its been great. a bit expensive but i would do it again in a sec. if anything happend to this one. some one steeling it is the only problem i can see having with it and my puppy keeps the odds of that low.
