    Check you hood for "leaks".....hold it up to a light or towards the sun etc.....check to see if any light is coming it around the lens....some have had this problem....another thing about the HF hood is it's short.....what I mean is the bottom part doesn't go down as far as others do so watch the angle of your head.....and a bright colored shirt can reflect under the hood and cause what happened to you.....I have the Northern tool cheap helmet as well as a Hobart....they both work fine the Hobart is more comfortable to wear and is clearer......the NT doesn't need to be turned on so I like that as I have a few times forgot to turn on the Hobart.....no worries as Broccoli stated you are protected in the "clear" stage....

    I have a new Miller that I was worried about getting damaged in the shop so I bought a used one (unknown mfg) at a garage sale for $25. It looked like new so I thought I'd give it a try. It has a push "ON" button on the left outside and a dial to set the dark shade next to it. It has a delay and sensitivity setting on the inside, uses two "AAA's".
    Its now the only one I use, I love it.
    I've seen them at my local welding supply for $67. Grizzly has them for $27 the last time I looked, same hood. Even the headgear is as good as my Miller.
    It has a gold color to it that seems to make the puddle easier to see.
    Go figure.

    Hey If you wire driectly from the pole to your welder you cna save a bunch of money on those worthless breakers. Or better yet you could put some foil belween the welder and the leads off the power pole.


    Hey are any of you guys related to the guy who built this?? http://www.millerwelds.com/education...ead.php?t=2488

    ITS ONLY YOUR EYES! YOU ONLY GET ONE PAIR!

    Remember weld damage doesn't show up the next day it takes year.

    Hee Hee just messing with Yall. I know these guys are tring to save a buck but do it on something else.

    So, Miller's 69.00 hood is bad for us?

    I would buy the best one you could afford. You can never be too cheap when it comes to protecting your eyes. Some of the Auto Darkening helmets have a hard time adjusting to the light when your looking at the sun.
    I'm known alot people who have Speedglass helmets and love them.
