I'm new to welding and trying to teach myself but find I just can't get along with the ordinary visor. I can't see where the world is, let alone the work. I've removed the lens and hold it before me like industrial lorgnettes, but sometimes I get it wrong and get a blinding flash.
It would seem that the electronic visors, which darken in a fraction of a second, would be ideal so I wonder if anyone here uses one and can confirm how good they are --or not, as the case may be?
Being on a small fixed income, pennies have to be pinched where it's reasonable to do so. WeldUK have a visor for about £50, Screwfix have one for £100. Does anyone know anything about either of these? I'd prefer the cheaper one for obvious reasons.
