Keith,

The helmets will be available online shortly. We are doing the pictures. The prices range from $79.99 to $189.99 for the helmet with Grinding and Welding modes with the bigger viewing lenses. If you are interested in a specific helmet, we can get you the specs right away. We also take paypal.

The photo is an animated GIF, all helmets are shown along with a shot of the control panel.

So ALL of the control panels are the same ? I will look through it again. Things that are good to know are positions of switches, ease of changing back and front clear lens etc. Are all of the headgears the same and the only thing that changes is the shell ?

do these helmets use standard size lens plates?

i have a harbor freight helmet, and his has special cover plates. it really makes it a pain in the arse to get the cover plates.

I have the $49.00 one with the blue flames it works great except for grinding and changing the cover plates. I have to either cut one down or buy theirs.

Take a look at Simon's post, he states that the price of the helmets varies with the grinding mode and size of viewing area.
Also from the picks there is at least one helmet that has out side darking controls. I think we need to wait for them to appeare on the website.

It looked like they all had essentially the same viewing area. All similar to a standard size filter plate, I didn't see any with a large viewing area. Simon are you speaking of just fractions of an inch viewing size or are there some large lens helmets coming ?

Gaustin,

There are some helmets with bigger viewing areas. We will have everything on the site shortly with full specs and descriptions. If there a particular model you are interested in, please let me know.

I will be taking some videos of one of the units this weekend. Will show details on the controls and how sensitivity settings affect the darkening. I will post a link when I get them created.
