    I don't have any current recommendations. Look on Harbor Freight Northern Tools Amazon and pick the one with the best reviews.

    He just did not think they were made as well as some of the more expensive ones. But he wears his 5 or 6 days a week. I got mine for around 60+. Northern Tool has it on sale for 69.00. https://www.northerntool.com/shop/t...&utm_source=Google_PLA&utm_medium=Welding > W . I think ordered mine from Cyberweld on sale. They have a hand full of Hobarts all under 100. That link I posted on Amazon is to much money.

    I have been looking at welding helmets. Currently have one I bought at Tractor Supply.

    AccuStrike is made in the USA. The chin operated shield is intriguing.

    My wife just bought me a YES WELDER helmet on Amazon. It is excellent, especially for 40 bucks. I've paid twice that much for several helmets and they are not as good as this one. I am very happy with it.
