A good hood cheap price
Hi! I hope by this time ,you have found a good cheap hood . not all of us can afford a good self darkening hood .I waited years to get mine .About checking the pound shops most of the times you find really good bargains .like I did when I found my top of the line speedglass for $66.00 and "0" tax .to make the story short, I was checking the tools an so .and I saw this hood still in the box. and It looked like it was used just a few hours .so I ask the owner of the store for price ,and said hmmmm.about 100.00? And I Knew. I only had 66.00 bucks in my pocket .so I told him I was short a few bucks .and had to get some cash at the ATM . He says how much do you have ? 66.00 I said, He says SOLD !
I went home and price it on the internet at several places and found out it was worth 360.00 bucks .anyway that's an idea .so, I wish you lots of luck.

cheap welding hoods
Gsd34m, first off you have to look t what are you wanting to do with what type of hood your looking for? example are you just wanting to weld or do you want to be able t9o do more with it,such as cutting,grinding,torching do you see what I'm getting at if all you want to do is welding the I would look at a speedglass utility for about $170-185 these ar pretty basic for auto-darking.
Now if you want to be able to do all the lateset and greatest stuff then yes you will be paying a great deal more for them such as the Miller DIgital ELite hoods which are around $290-320 but they do it all and yes they do have some cool graphics, but in MY OPINION they are still kind of bulky for me and so I have leande to the speedglass type which do have a bigger viewing area and also I think are litter the all the other hoods on the market.
For years I've had used a Huntsman fixed #8 with the large window, just trying to get a quicker pace, but the problem I have is when doing alot of welding for the day my neck is killing me at night form flipping it up and down all day so you see why its important to get a good lite,comfortable hood and that also has a quicker responce time for changeing when you begin to weld.
Also like the other guys have said when it comes to your eyes there is no price to much to pay for the cost of being blind. Tack your time and get a good one that your happy with and use it.
