    ISO50,

    I respect your decision and wish you much luck in photography. If you decide to try welding again just drop us a line and we'll try to help you.

    To all other members. ISO and I have discussed this several times. We need to be fair to him. Let's give him the opportunity to pursue life as he sees fit. The $200 tag for the helmet and gloves sounds more than fair. I wish I needed another hood. If anybody is looking this really is a superb helmet

    recently i was very depressed. i got over it by making my welding cart. it REALLY took my mind off my problems.
    I have given up on life several times. Photography is my way out, not welding, and I have realized that. If you want to buy the helmet fine, if not please dont waste your time posting in this tread. If someone on here doesn want it, its going on ebay.

    I am selling the helmet so I can buy equipment to start a photography business, I'm not giving up on welding, only delaying it.

    Welding doesn't have to be a source of stress, it can be a great source of stress relief. You are not competing with HAWK on your first bead. You are only competing with yourself, to learn, and better yourself. You can only get better with some practice, and you will feel much better about yourself for it.

    School is a wonderful thing, But, not required for you to learn to enjoy welding. Perhaps if Andy shows you some basics, with a little practice, school will not be as stressfull. By knowing a few basics before you go to school, you may develop the confidence to learn what school can teach you.

    A car, a building, a computer, As a whole,can be complicated. But they are all built one step, one piece, at a time. One cannot learn ALL of anything at one time. But one small step at a time and great things are possible.

    You may never reach the skill level of Andy, But it is not required that you do so for you to enjoy welding and creating. You cannot fail as long as you are trying to learn........You have nothing to lose........except some self-doubt and fears...........and.........nobody minds losing those..........Don't give up.......don't sell the helmet..........

    This is not an opportunity to lose.........this is an opportunity to win. You can do it........Andy will show you that you can........Don't give up now.

    Good Luck

    As most of you know, welding school didn't work out for me. So I am selling my Miller Big Window Elite (Stars and Stripes). I will be using the helmet on Monday with Andy at Miller, otherwise this helmet has zero use. I am selling it for $200 + Shipping, and I am including a pair of welding gloves, with the same use as the helmet.
