For the odd-job DIYer you can get a solar lense-only for $100 then fit it to a $13 non-auto helmutt.

I got all in one el-cheapo batt-powered LED one for $130 but they're on special for $100 at a few welding shops in ACT at the mo.

Ask Buddha about how good a tan you get with brazing goggles when used for welding

Gasweld, in Fyshwick ACT - very cool shop.

I made quite a mess when I went there for the first time.

shop asst " Are you guys right ?"
me "Shit yeah mate ! We're just checking out all your cool stuff !"
shop asst : lol

They got a bus jack and walls of dewalt gear. Welders for rc cars right up to the bizmark and compressors for pumping up your hindenburg (or nike airs).

I have a snap on that works well. Bit on the expensive side though. But does a great job.

The Aussie Predator brand I have found to be the best . Also allows you to easily swap in over-size conventional lenses when required.

Sold my Speedglass, the windows on the side were a pain when someone else was welding next to me and the controls on the inside were inconvenient.

Also have a Optrel with respirator for when we do alley or work inside confined spaces.

I use a Miller and I would say its the best I've used. it's solar and it has flames on it so it must be good...lol

I have no problems with other welder like I did with my old Speedglass 'though I don't weld near anyone else much anymore.

One thing but, I only use gas, stick and mig on Tig so tig may be different but I'm told it will work.

My Speedglass was $180 12 months ago and my new Miller was $250.
And I tell ya, anyone that says auto is worth the money hasn't use a good helment.

all you need is one flash when you do a tack and you can stuff ya eyes by a % do it lets say ten time and you can go blind........... so is $200 or $300 to Much

Just had a look@ one of my favourite tool sites they have a special inc freight $140ish Great prices on other gear too
have a look@ transquip.com.au
Go to powertools, then helments.

No connection to me and I havent delt direct with them.
Found it a handy place to compare prices when the catalogues come in the mail.
