Video Review


Video Transcript


whether you’re looking for your first
welding helmet or considering upgrading
or buying a new one Eastwood has the
helmets with the features you need when
your MIG TIG or stick welding let’s take
a look at these helmets from Eastwood
which range from an economy entry level
style to 180 degree panoramic view if at
any time you want to visit Eastwood for
more information on any of these helmets
simply click or tap the button in the
top corner of the video all these
helmets are auto dimming which means you
can see through the lens when the helmet
is down and when you strike an arc it
dims to protect your eyes this feature
is nice because it allows you to
precisely hold your work pieces together
and the torch in the proper position
while looking through the lens the size
of the lens increases as you move up
through the helmets with the basic
helmet having seven square inches of
viewing area the large view ten square
inches the extra-large view 14 square
inches and the panoramic 15 square
inches in the center lens and a total of
26 square inches when you include the
side lenses a large viewing area is nice
and it helps prevent strain and neck
fatigue it’s particularly useful when
you’re in tight awkward positions are
welding under a car let’s take a look at
each helmet this basic helmet has two
arc sensors to change it from a three
shade to an eleven shade when you strike
an arc which means we’ll be okay for an
entry-level MIG welder doing light work
now let’s take a look at these other
three helmets that have a lot more
features that you want or may need in a
quality welding helmet all are made of
impact resistant nylon and have an
adjustable headband with replaceable
sweatband plus a five-way adjustable
tilt to allow you to get the helmet at
the proper angle to your head and eyes
all adjustments are easily made with a
few turns of the knobs they all have art
charging batteries that recharge while
you’re welding these helmets have four
arc sensors for improved dimming when
you’re striking an arc which is
necessary for doing low amperage TIG
welding they also include the standard
adjustments for delay sensitivity and
shade including grind mode to allow you
to get the exact performance you need
when you’re welding the adjustable
shading grind mode features are nice
because it allows you to reshape
tungsten grind weld beads or even
plasma-cut without wasting time
switching from your helmet to protective
glasses and back to your helmet again
these helmets all have true color
technology which provides realistic
color perception and clarity so you have
a much clearer view of your workpiece
and the puddle this is really helpful if
you don’t have the best eyes or if
you’re getting older and your eyes
aren’t as good as they used to be you
can really see the difference looking
through the lens when compared to a
standard auto dimming helmet these
helmets from Eastwood with true color
technology will definitely allow you to
see better whether your MIG TIG or stick
welding let’s take a look at a few
differences in these three helmets if
seeing better is an issue you may want
to consider the large view or
extra-large view welding helmets which
give you the ability to attach a
magnifying lens which may improve your
welding the large view and extra-large
view have an adjustable shade range from
4 to 13 giving you the ability to do mig
welding up to 500 amps and TIG welding
up to 300 amps the shade range on the
panoramic adjusts from a three shade to
a 12 allowing you to MIG load up to 300
amps and TIG load up to 175 amps so if
you need a helmet for TIG welding your
best options would be the large or
extra-large view helmets right here the
panoramic helmet features an extended
throat guard for added protection as
well as the 180-degree view which is
really helpful in tight spots now let’s
do a quick review of the helmets if you
just need a basic entry-level helmet
this auto-dimming helmet will work for
light mig welding but I definitely
suggest one of these helmets right here
that have all the features you need to
see your workpiece and get the best
welds these three have nearly all the
same features that are available in
quality helmets including all the
controls you need to perfectly adjust
the helmet for your needs plus true
color technology for the best viewing if
you’re buying based on lens size you’ll
probably want the extra large view or
even the panoramic glory helmet that are
both significantly larger than standard
helmets and will help you see better if
you need to add a magnifying lens you
want to check out the large or
extra-large u helmets which give you the
ability to add a lens if you’re buying
for TIG welding you should also consider
the large or extra-large view helmets
which can be adjusted all the way to a
13 shade I hope this help you decide
which helmet is best for your needs
whether you’re buying your first helmet
or looking to upgrade an old one

There is a lot to consider when looking for the best welding helmet for your needs. This article will discuss what to look for in a welding helmet and what to consider as you shop around for your new helmet.

Welding helmets are extremely important pieces of equipment for anyone who wants to be safe while operating heavy machinery or even working with your hands. It will keep your head from being damaged by flying metals or even flying debris, which can also cause serious injury and even death.

When you are shopping around for a helmet, you need to be sure that the one you purchase is made of a high quality material. It should also be durable enough to keep the helmet protected from all but the most extreme environments. You do not want your helmet to crack after just one use. You also want it to be lightweight so that it can be easily carried with you to the work site or to any other work site that you might find yourself working at down the road.

You also need to make sure that the one that you choose has a variety of vents so that you can adjust the helmet according to the amount of smoke that gets blown into your eyes. If you work in an environment where there is low humidity then the vents that the helmet comes equipped with is very important. Some helmets have the vents already installed; this is not advisable since it makes the whole thing harder to adjust and will take up more space.

Another important factor to consider is how easy it is to adjust the straps on your welding helmet. You should also be able to adjust the chin strap so that it is comfortable. Some of the newer helmets offer a strap adjustment tool that allows you to adjust the strap without having to remove your welding helmet in order to do so. The good news is that these straps typically cost under ten dollars and can easily be changed if needed. A lot of people prefer to have a strap adjuster on their welding helmets so they can easily adjust it to suit their own needs.

There is a lot to consider when it comes to selecting safety equipment like welding helmets. However, it is essential to make sure that you get the best product for your money. If you follow the tips above then you should have no trouble finding a welding helmet for your needs at a price under $100.
