Default Look what I found!

I read all about the aluminium welding glasses that Kent White invented and decided to do a bit of searching to see what I could find, I came up with this http://www.phillips-safety.com/Weldi...eld-Lenses.htm These seem to be exactly the same in all respects except price and they were developed by a company with the resources and expertise nessesary for this type of development. I hope this will be of interest to some of you and perhaps save you some money

David, thanks for the info. Looks like the same lens sold by others but at a cheaper price.

Default Lenses

I am in the process of getting one of their lenses and testing (comparison) it myself, I own TM2000 (used them for 12 years) and Cobra cobalt,if it works well I will be adding it to my inventory for sale.

Our Cobra Cobalt lenses while plastic do remove the sodium flare well they however scratch and are darker than the TM lens which shatters very easily, Ask me how I know, I have broke 3 2X4 and 1 4-1/2 X 5 ,Ouch!

Jim I have a blue plastic cobra lens from you. I have used it with a green lens, and it was to dark. I have tried it alone between two clear plastic lenses and it didn't seem to bright. I have to see if I can find a lighter shade lense to run with it I suppose? What do you recomend?
Thanks!!
Jeff

Hi Guys
On the Alloweld lens why do they offer so many different shades and which one is best for gas welding aluminum, when using flux. Reading the Colbalt lens on Jims site it's suggested the number three lens. I can only assume the Allo lens would be a #4 if I am reading it correct. My wife and I was at Hershey Car Show Swap Meet this past week and met Jims good friend Dal, who was demo'ing the Cobra (henrod) and at the end of the demo my wife Kate said is that really everything he say's it is ? I said OhYes I spent a few hours at Jims booth in Robinson back in 2004 and it is really a great product . My wifes jaw dropping reply was...............Dal we'LL take one I tried all my might to tell her no but my jaw was still in it's dislocated state. So needless to say I have to get my Lens ASAP..............

I have these lenses in a Shade #5.

I don't have a lot of welding experience to draw from so my assessment of them may not hold water, but i find the Alloweld lenses adequate for my needs.

I can see the puddle clearly when welding, so it does the job for me.
