    Bert,

    Why is he cutting it out? The Jackson guy at the tent sale was also selling removable cartridges (autodark and nexgen). Couldn't he just mount those directly on the leather hood?

    THANKS JAMES I have a co-worker with that helmet! I told him I thought it was something for people that had some kind of eye problems!!! He's from guam or the phillipines or someplace like that and he said all the pipefitters wear 'em...Side plate helps shield the face from the sparks/slag.

    jonnymag, he saves about 3" of plastic around the lens and rivets the leather to that.

    you should be really happy with the BWE. i love mine, never been flashed. the new ones have a grind mode, wish mine did but hey still very happy with it.
    the price thing is a bummer, but you get what ya pay for. and for a long tern item like a hood, so far mine has been $37 a year and getting cheaper every year.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    We just had a tent sale, but didn't have the money to buy one. I'll get a BWE as long as it has room for my respirator underneath it

    Actually, since I'm trying some tig now, I broke down and bought a 4-sensor NexGen at the tent sale. I think it's in the same price range as the BWE.

    John, I didn't know NEXGEN made a 4 sensor one!!! This is embarressing, but I went to buy more safety shields for my speedglass, and found out the chin brace I've had for 4 years was my cause for my respirator not fitting!!! Took it off and it works fine!! Gosh, I thought I would have to wear my $40 special, since I start tomorrow night and we have to wear respirators the whole 12 hours!!!
