Watching the mig/tig vids (awesome) and his helmet looks comfortable, simple and high quality. Anyone know the make and model he uses? I have two older crappy ones and thinking of a new one.

Can you post a picture of it, I haven't seen the video.... Just edited this post ... I did a search on youtube and it looks like he is wearing a Huntsman. I have only welded with 5 or 6 different helmets but this happens to be one of them. The model he has on is the one, or one very similar, to what I used. It's light and affordable. I was looking in to buying one soon actually. A friend of mine is the one who owns it and he put in a magnifying lens behind the shade lens. I don't have problems seeing close, but that magnifier sure is nice. Might consider it. Makes you not have to have your face so close to the weld.

Looks like a huntsman 411p. I bought one at a garage sale a few years ago. It's light and I love the headgear. It has a patented system where, when you do the "nod" to drop the helmet, it actually works very well.
I use it way more than my high end auto-dark. I just got used to it quick, and am comfortable with it.
They're cheap. You can't really go wrong with trying one out.
Mine came with a magnifier. It's a clear glass plate that fits in behind the lense.

'a magnifting lense behind the lense' like one of those plastic sheets you can use to magnify print / map books , whatever?

that is one neat idea.
Yea... kinda... Its not that high of a power, just enough. It takes a little getting used to, but when you get the feel of it, I think you will like it.

Thanks David, again thanks for putting out such great videos. I got both the MIG and TIG and really liked how easily that helmet was behaving on your head.

I picked up the 400 series, looked similar. Hope it shows up with some lenses.
