I don't have a auto darkening helmet. I want one and I like them. I do however have a cheapy $8 Harbor freight helmet without the head strap in it and a piece of plywood screwed to the front of it.
I got tired of the flipping down thing on my other helmet so while I was at Harbor reight I got a cheap on sale one and modified it. It has become so much easier to use that I don't ever use my helmet except if I am having someone hold something or me.

My 110 Mig welder is not that great. Its a old Crapsman. Not varialble heat adjustment just High and Low. I have trouble with burn through even on the low settings sometimes. Like today while welding my hinges in. Frustrated the hell out of me.
