I'm just getting started in welding and have purchased a 130 xp tonite I was praticing and was joining a 1/8 inch steel to a 3/16 inch and had my machine controls set on 4 and 40 and was using a number 10 shield hood and flux wire .030 everything was going fine when I got this intense flash that lit up my # 10 shield then my arc went back to normal this happened twice on my weld. I've never had such an intense flash I had black spots in my eyes for awhile. then after about 6hrs my eyes feel a little irritated. Can anyone tell me what caused the intense flash and how to prevent it . and is a # 10 face shield enough. thanks Ken
