    That sucks. I remember welding at the air force base for 3 hrs each day, for 2 yrs, at mclellan. Talk about flash focus........

    My glasses are UV coated, so if I'm tacking without the big ugly hat at least the welders suntan is lessened. Mostly I keep the tacking without the helmet to a minimum, because it gets painful and looks stupid.
