Just for reference MIG is usually a 10 shade and TIG is usually a 9. Unless your running Dual shield then the shade will go to 12. That stuff is hot. And then stick is 9 or 10. It depends on the welder on where those settings are used. I was told in school to turn it down till you see spots then got up one. Hope this helps.

I always ran around 8-9 with the mig and never had any problems (miller 252, .030 75/25 mostly on 1/8 and 3/16). but due to the smoke etc that setup isn't isn't very bright in comparison.

I have a funky bathroom light fixture with three 60w bulbs setting over top of my welding table and adjusted the sensitivity so it will just blink on/off when i look up/down. any more sensitive and it would just stay dark, but it is a lot more sensitive than it was before.

today i plan to work a lot on my front cruiser housing and tomorrow i'm going to install an artec truss on a guy's jkr front housing. so if my brain is trying to claw out of my skull on monday i guess i'll know that a new lid is required.

I've had my Speedglass 9100x for about three years now. Use it about 4-8 hrs a day. Headgear or whatever is the most comfortable and has a ton of adjustments. Lens and viewing area are huge and also has a ton of settings. And you can fit a respirator under it! I've had a bunch of different hoods and this is my favorite and most comfortable yet. Havent had to change the battery yet either.

You have gotten weak Grasshopper! The steel on those Toyota parts you're working on is trying to toughen you up!

Glad you got it figured out. If you do decide on getting a hood the offer is there to come test em before you decide. I used to run 9 for mig on mine but was a bit bright. No spots but bumping it up one help me stay straight. I have the 252 also running mixed gas. As far as metal crap in the eye I have found contacts are a great second defense. lmao.

Thanks for the offer! but thankfully, i think i'm good and don't need a new lid right away. i spent 7 hours yesterday working on this jk axle, a vast majority of that under the hood, and the headaches haven't come back.

arg... out of gaz on both machines now though!
