    1.2 pounds and the adjuster knobs are on the outside of the hood.... only 2 arc sensors.... the question you SHOULD be asking is "where can i buy more clear protective lenses from and how much are they?" this lid would be a no go for me....

    6 (each) Thermadyne 252i mig/ stick/ tig
    Thermal Dynamics a-60 automated cutter
    Thermal cutmaster 52 handheld cutter
    '07 pro300 miller

    800 ton break

    I agree with Stan. - If the protective lenses are proprietary, it can be a pain if you need one, and can't just go to your local welding supply to get it.

    This is exactly why I love my Harbor Freight lid. And H.F. is about 10 minutes from my house.

    For its price the area of the veiwing area is very high, just as the other guys say get yourself one of their six packs of replacement lenses, alot of welders believe that your eyes are not worth chincing out on but I have a couple of import welding helmets.I see them as disposable helmets.
    I have seen some welding helmets from Lincoln normally price at $180.00 on sale at Candian Tire here in Canada lately for about $100.00, so it pays to look around, how much welding do you do, hobby or apprenticeship.
    Also Simon has a black helmet for about $99.00 and it has about 14sq inches of veiwing area, why don't you inquire about this, it is on sale;

    +1 on the miller digital elite.They cost to much but i am glad i have at least 1 of them.I use mine strictly for tig.I have a Jackson for stick and mig that i use.I have diabetes so i am pretty careful about my eyes.

    I used to have a speedglass and now I am also using a miller elite. Like the 4 sensors, much better hood. Also like the battery backup.
