    I have no idea about the helmet you mention. I have a miller elite and its a nice lid. Sometimes at low amps while tigging i get flashed though.. not a pleasant feeling.
    Will it weld? I loooove electricity!

      Welcome to the board Brian

      I have the SpeedGlas Utility myself and I love it. If I had it to do over, I would have bought one of the better ones with an adjustment for sensitivity. The sun and yellow caution lights on vehicles makes my helmet go into some kind of fit until it is out of range.

      What else is there besides welding and riding. Besides that

      Miller Thunderbolt XL 300/200 AC/DC
      Hobart Handler 187
      Dewalt Chop Saw
      4" Air Grinder
      Die Grinder
      Rigid Drill Press
      Kellogg 10hp Air Compressor

        i have had my BWE for many years and love it. the new ones have some cool new features as well.
        its kind of a look for what you think is the best fit for you . many have small diferences but if you stick to a good name brand you should be happy with it.
        thanks for the help
        hope i helped
        feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. [email protected]
        summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.
