Looking for recommendations on a new welding helmet....
I didn't find much recent, but it seems that the Jackson EQC is pretty highly recommended.
I guess a list of what I am looking for would be helpful:
I use stick and TIG. Don't have a MIG at the exact moment, but have had one. I would like an autodark. Used my Dad's a few times and it is really nice. I want one with solar recharge(his doesn't and is always dead). I would like the "big" window.
Of course I don't want to spend more than neccessary, but I look at this as a "long term" investment so I want to buy the best within reason.
As a general rule, I like to buy the better X the first time instead of buying the lessor and then going to buy the other eventually anyways.
