    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.
    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

    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

    I have a bunch of stickers on my 1st 2 helmets, but picked up another cheap one at the last tent sale for a backup. I want to mask and spray it one day
    (no,no contest on that one ), who knows, do a good job and may get some work for yourself out of it

    Default fixed lens helmet

    Jackson hood available at most any welding supply, This one cost me about 30 bucks. Decals were supplied by my nieces, They didn't think I looked mean enough with the plain white hood. Dave
