Good Day To You,
Follow this link it will bring you to an on-line distributor where you can purchase what your looking for. I found several lens replacements for different helmets and a solar powered Auto darken helmet though not just the lens for it, it could be further down the list if that is what your looking for. Sometimes people just pick the closest thing to what they have. Need any further assistance will be glad to provide. Thanks for using FixYa and have a great weekend. Jeff

Welding helmet lens covered with spatter?

Is your welding helmet glass dark lens covered with spatter from welding and need replacement often? Cut a piece of 1/16" (1.5mm) clear perspex to the same size as the lens and install this in front of the dark glass. Spatter does not adhere to the perspex and the glass lens will be protected indefinitly.

Prone to arc eyes from welding?

If you have a conventional flip lens welding helmet and are prone to getting arc eyes from "peeping" though a gap to strike your arc, try this.<br /> Replace the inside fixed clear lens in your helmet with a yellow perspex lens. The world will appear strange at first through the yellow lens, but the yellow cuts out the ultra violet rays that cause arc eyes. The yellow lens should not be considered a replacement for the dark glass, it is only to shield you from that inadvertant flash when making your strike.

How come my helmet stops working

Hello, being a welder myself this can be frustrating. I wonder if your helmet is dirty over the solar cell. The solar cell provides the power to make the helmet darken. My other thought is this, I know how helmets can get roughed up. Look at the solar cell carefully, is it cracked at all? If so, then the cell cannot create the electricity needed.

Have a 120 volt 70 amp stick welder what gauge or stick type do i use

1/16th stick to 3/32nd.
3/32nd being the maximum. Don't use 3/32 for an extended period of time, or you can burn up that welder. (Even if it has a fan. If it doesn't have a fan built-in, I invite you to put a house box fan, close to the ventilation slots for the welder)

I would also recommend using 6011 rod. It's a mild steel rod, and is excellent to begin with. Usually used for filling, and medium strength situations. It does splatter, be aware of that.

Not trying to give you a tutorial on beginning welding, but would like to offer some tips:

1.Make sure the ground clamp has a good, clean surface it's clamped to. If not, it will be very hard to get the rod started, and also to keep it going. (Makes bad welds too)

2.Start with a B U T T weld. (Had to type it that way do to censorship of certain words)
That's laying two pieces of metal next to each other, and laying a bead in-between them. Easiest thing to start with. Go to corner welds next, (Two pieces together at a 90 degree angle), then try Uphill welds.

3.Shield flipped up on helmet, welder on. Lay the rod past the area you are going to start on. Past the metal edge. Lay the ->flux coating of the rod on the edge of the metal piece. The tip of the rod is past the metal edge by at least two inches.

This way you are lined up to begin the weld. Then flip your shield down, draw the rod back, until the tip of the rod touches the metal. Once the arc starts, lift the rod up a little to get the correct height, and keep that arc going.

4.Watch the PUDDLE, not the arc! You are watching the melted metal in front of the arc. You need to see how that puddle is doing, in order to compensate by bringing the rod closer, or further away.

5.Use a Zig-Zag pattern to begin with. Keep the Zig-Zag close to each other, until you are comfortable enough to make a longer pattern. Watch the penetration. Good penetration is the key, not a pretty weld.

6.Use the proper safety equipment. If the welding helmet lens has a tiny little scratch, you will burn your eyes. NO fun, believe me!
You won't know it until you wake up the next day with your eyes swelled shut!

Cover your arms, and use welding gloves. Welders give can give you a radiation burn, worse than a bad sunburn. NEVER just start welding a little with No welding helmet. Welding goggles are for the birds, or Acetylene welding!

Be safe, have fun welding!

Where does NEIKO USA come from?

Hi, Please do not give me a bad rating for this information as you asked and I am going to give you the answer - even though you ain't gonna like it!
Credit to "tenmmike" for his research. Neiko USA is manufactured by Zhejiang Kangle Group in China. As you have found out the USA stamp means nothing. In my opinion it should not be legal. Sorry, Good Luck to you!
