or maybe it's me...
let's just say it's the sweater...
Last night in welding class we played with the TIG welders... Man oh man... You NEED to have some coordination for that... When most of the class gave up and went back to their paddles, I stayed behind and practiced on the TIG some more... I've decided that I really need to invest in a really good helmet. I definately want the auto darkening and maybe something with a larger view area... I dig the monkey, I just don't think it's very practical... It also doesn't really shield your neck, which is rather important...
The guy I was working with, Mitch, has this helmet
The thing is really fantastic. There's no need to keep lifting it up so you can see... I think I'll have to start saving my pennies.
Maybe I'll try for this one
it's boring and black but at $209 it's a tad cheaper than the others...
Here's a link
about TIG welding for those not in the know..

Ok I'm not sure how I feel about this
