    Default Welding Helmet ?

    I'm Thinking On Buying A Hornell Speedglas (flex View).does Anybody Have An Opinion On This Helmet,(good Or Bad).and Does Anyone Know If You Can Add The Adflo System To Any Speedglas Helmet,or Does It Just Fit The One In The Kit. Thanks

    I am partial to jackson helmets i think they seem to have more protection than most other brands of helmets, but the speedglass's seem to be realy light weight. I have a Jackson nexgen and i would reccomend considering one of those, I am realy happy with it.

    I work with a couple of welders that use the hornell lids with the adflo pack. They like them a lot and say the helmet is very light weight. I how ever do not have experience with using hornell products, I use the North powered air respirator and it works with most lids and face shileds.

    You ask about helmets and you will get about as many answers as there are brands. I love my Miller BWE.

    they may well have to remove you from the site for such blasfumy. just kidding , i realy like my BWE also but like Pitalplace said you will likely get several opinions as every one tends to like diferent things in a helmit and as such no one helmit will keep every one happy. too many vereables, i have the older model BWE and they have added more features to it here recently.
    odds are good the air system will work with most all the big name hoods. dropping them a e-mail to there website suport would likely get you a verification as to its usability.
    welcome to the board.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com

    Wait till you weld for a living and your helper runs over your 400 dollar helmet. Most of those helmets won't work when it's cold out . I have a Fiber metal pipeliner withan auto lens in it it'll work down to -20 c the millers won't. My helmet and lens together was under 2oo bucks. Save your money for a machine or quality tools instead of getting sucked into buying somthing because it looks cool. Learn how to weld without one first ( an auto helmet that is) Then when you get really good and can take care of s-hit drop the money otherwise spend your money on welding lessons. Jef
