High Quality Cheap Welding Helmets
Many cheap welding helmets can be found with the same important options that you will find in the more expensive brand name welding helmets. High quality auto darkening, lightweight, large lens, adjustable darkness, and more options can be found in welding helmets at very reasonable and affordable prices.
When shopping for a cheap auto darkening welding helmet make sure that it meets all ANSI Z87.1 standards. Never give up quality or your safety just to save a few dollars. If it does not meet ANSI Z87.1 standards, keep looking there are plenty more cheap welding helmets that will.
All auto darkening welding helmets are powered by batteries. These welding helmets are either rechargeable, solar rechargeable, or are run by regular batteries. When choosing your cheap welding helmet keep in mind that the more times you start your welding arc the more your batteries will run down. This is why for the serious welder a solar charging welding helmet will let you concentrate more on the welding and less on welding hood maintenance.
The cheap auto darkening welding hoods are made with higher technology and will actually weigh less than many of the non auto darkening welding hoods. This is a huge advantage over other welding hoods. Adjustable shade controls can be found when looking at cheap welding helmets. This will allow you to adjust the darkness of the shade when you are welding. This also will allow you to adjust the amperage of your welder without having to change the lens in your helmet. Less lenses and less effort and saves you time.
