  • helmet lens

    I am going to get a auto darkening helmet soon, until then.

    I have a forney helmet, with a #10 lens, I have problems seeing on beads. I use a lincoln 125 on light metal. Would a # 8 work

    sorry duplicate post

    I would recomend a #9..i mean you can use an 8 but it lets to much light through and i dont think thats good for your vision
