I'm an ignoramus in need of advice - My boyfriend wants an auto-darkening welding mask for his birthday. He's building a car and wants an auto-darkening mask to go with his shiny new tig welder, instead of the hand-held mask with a screen which is always black. I've been looking on ebay and it seems like they start at about £25 plus £10 postage from the states. My question - are these cheap ones worth it, or do you really need to pay for quality? No point buying one which will still damage your eyes. And which brands are good?
Thanks for your help! M
