    u paid 300 for a jackson?!?!??! what??

    Ive got myself an Optrel Satellite…I am a hobbyist welder, but I have worked in a fabrication shop as a welder/fitter.

    I spent 300 bucks on it yeah, but you only get one set of eyes, and it fits inside roll cages really nicely because of its tight profile.

    IMO if youre going to weld, even as a hobbyist spend the money on a quality helmet you wont regret it.

    What I wish he had mentioned was helmet weight…wear a 3lb helmet all day and youll see what I mean.

  8. scottstrike10 on August 28th, 2009 4:23 am

    I put some loctite blue on my headgear knobs and they have not loosened up ever again.

    I think you shouldn’t compare lemons with apples here. The cheap helmets are often helmets that can ONLY be used for stick welding and should NOT, I repeat NOT be used for MIG or TIG welding.
    There is a difference in the frequency of the arc and don’t let any (cheap helmet-) manufacturor try to tell you otherwise!

    speedglass9002x is the best helmet on the market ive got one very expensive but.

  12. csking666 on August 28th, 2009 4:23 am

    I have my jacson nex gen and I love it. I wanted the quickest auto helmet I could find and afford. For 2 bills I am very happy with it and love the fact it has solar cells to charge the batteries was also a determining factor.

    Hi I got the Jackson 2400 Predator And my Helmet can snap in place so that it wont come down by itself as you work try it on your helmet, but don’t yank it :)
    i wish you luck nice weldin btw.
    greetings from Germany!

    I love my cheapo auto-darkening helmet from Harbor Freight. Great video!

    What do you think of the Accu-Strike Welding Helmet ?

  16. squaddy11 on August 28th, 2009 4:23 am

    Newbe welder here…
    Thanks for this video, I really want to get an auto dark helmet but was cautious of the cheaper ones and couldn’t afford the expensive ones…”50 bones” sounds good

  17. mycoid on August 28th, 2009 4:23 am

    I bought one of those(miller big window) for my school and the batteries ran out 3 times in one semester at 16.00 a pop. and it does say not for overhead welding in the book that comes with it I didn’t know that until just now. read it.

  18. freddytk421 on August 28th, 2009 4:23 am

    no its a real one and it even says it in the instruction manual read it yourself “Not for overhead welding” . I will post a video.

  19. alphadog1x on August 28th, 2009 4:23 am

    Wow, I’ve got a Miller elite (big window) and weld overhead all the time. I’ve got a leather flap that I velcro on to protect my neck when welding overhead. No problems with it. Batteries last me a year each, and I work 9hrs/day. Mine are easy to change too. I think you must have got a Miller ripoff/fake.

  20. freddytk421 on August 28th, 2009 4:23 am

    You should warn people about the Miller Big window elite. I bought one and in the instruction manual it says not for overhead welding the bottom lip on it collects spatter and melts all to hell. The batteries are constantly running out and they cost a lot of money. and its hard to change them when you are working and I really I think they should put that no overhead welding thing on the front of the box so people like me that have to weld on their back won’t get tricked. shame on you Miller.

  24. IamZiing on August 28th, 2009 4:23 am

    I’m fairly new to welding, I joined metal trades as a votech class this year as my sophmore year. And we use auto-darkening helmets of some off brand type.

  25. butkatrello on August 28th, 2009 4:23 am

    Well > I have a Harbor Fright one. It worked good for over a year. I got wet a few times, forgot left it out, so dryed it out still worked, but now not working, so took it apart, because warrenty was up. Tried to get charge on batteries(zip), called’em they wanted like $70 for replacemaent. I was wondering if I could put other batteries in it’s place, to make it work? Good video..
