I recently purchased two Esab welding helmets from Weldfabulous.com, first is the Esab Globe-Arc welding and grinding helmet shade 10 plus an extra external shade 8 and will be receiving it next week. The other one is the Esab New Tech 9-13 ADC Plus, this will be my first ADH and hopefully receive it next month, it will still have to be shipped from the US to the Phil.
Well I'm kinda excited in having these helmets soon, though I'm gearing up too for my plan to purchase a Mig or a Tig welder in the coming months. Anyway I chose the Esab New Tech ADH because of the great features it carries plus I can wear my 3M respirator inside the hood with ease while welding due to the large area in front of the mouth. Anyway when I get them both I'll post them and probably make a review and some comparison.
As of now I use a Hobart large flip viewing window with a passive lens for stick welding.
