Auto-darkening welding helmets have really come down in price while increasing features. An auto-darkening helmet, such as this Lincoln 2450-series Viking “StreetRod” (PN K3035-1) is a huge help to the novice and experienced welder alike by letting you keep an eye on the MIG gun and work surface the entire time. You can more-easily and precisely line up your initial weld, keep your hands steady by not flipping down a visor or helmet, and it makes cramped-quarter welding where you may not have room to raise your helmet easier.
