    I am not sure what you are asking. Are you asking if others are welding near me? If so I am welding alone. I do see refections in my hood from time to time.

    You don't have to weld without a helmet in order to burn your eyes and face. Even the reflection off your shirt/ inside of helmet is enough to turn your face red after a long day of welding. In fact, the light can even reflect off the smoke that gets in behind your lid if there is enough of it, I have had this happen when stick welding with bad ventilation. (In no way do I condone this) It can be hard to believe, I know I didn't. I uses to think the sun burn on my face was fromt he occasional "look away," so I made a point of not welding at all without my helmet. Still came home with a red face and Racoon eyes. All a can suggest is wear approved safety glasses under your helmet, and try wearing darker non reflective clothes. Good Luck.

    Hey Guys,
    Thanks for your help. I guess I am going to go with a fixed shade and some UV glasses. At least doing this for a hobby my exposure is much, much less.
    Thanks again,
    Nick
