I went to the local welding supply store today. Got a refill of my Ar/CO280, and an awesome red with white polka dots Comeaux welding cap. ;-) (Why is it that men who do something as masculine as welding get turned on by those barf colored caps?)
Whilst there, I almost bought a Huntsman 951P welding hood. I asked the sales geek if the NexGen lens would fit in there, or if he knew anything about the necessity for a special spring.
He looked perplexed, so I just passed.
This is the deal. I have the NexGen in the Jackson helmet it came in. I don't like the fact the the Jackson doesn't hold the weight up very well and droops constantly. I have heard here that the Huntsman is far better at holding up the weight of that lens. I have also heard that it takes an additional special clip/spring to hold it in properly.
Will someone who knows please set me straight? I promise to save it this time to my welding archives until I make it to the shop again.
