    SpeedyE Experimental prototype, never meant for production

    Been getting help for my 10 years of workplace abuse/etc.....slowly getting better. Vertigo is gone. Gaining control of my hands again.
    I am setting all my machines up in mom's 3-car garage, not to make money, but to hobby/mentally heal.

    Low mi 1980's Bridgeport, tight/smooth w/ German XYZ digi, and 360-vice, large sine-vice, and hori/vertical chuck, plus unlimited tooling.
    Lathe is a Beautiful 1967 1-owner (Hobbyist) Clausing 5900 in like new condition, w/ all the Clausing accessories, Royal production collet lever assy, 4-jaw, Buck 'centering/concentric' 3-jaw, + tons and tons of German/Jap tooling.
    Horizontal saws, chop saws, grinders, buffers, etc, etc, etc, etc.
    Garage has been wired for all machines.

    When I finally drug my welder out of the building, it was chaos (2018).......ex-employer said it was now his welder, not leaving building. As I drug it out anyways, he was pilfering the equipment/accessories. He got my gauges, gloves, helmet, respirator, an welding sticks/material and an argon tank.
    I got new cheap/chino gauges locally as well as a small argon tank.
    The Tig is Miller Syncrowave 180Sd.

    I have to buy Tillman deerskin gloves, Miller auto-darkening helmet, and Miller 1/2 respirator.
    I just finished building a new solid welding bench tonight.
    Where is the best place to look online for these 3 items?
    Any suggestions on specific helmet??? I like to be around $100 +/- for (Miller) auto-helmet.

    Thank you.

    Dave K DaveK über alles!

    F@ck, I needed space so I just gave away two sets of nearly new gloves, a leather sleeve, a auto tinting helmet and some other shit maybe 2 weeks ago. No gauges or sticks though.

    I'll dig around to see if there is anything else left.

    Never seen an "AMP Rating" on a helmet..just Shade Ratings...typically a good helmet will give plenty of UV Protection even if it does not cycle..it will still prevent UV Arc Burn
    Make sure you are not buying a KnockOff Helmet..buy from a reputable seller.
    (Make sure you don't have your cell phone facing the helmet..it will activate it, just an FYI)

    (I do not recommend any helmet from HarborFreight ...sorry)

    I have went to buying most of my consumables online because AirGas has bought up all the welding supply companies so no more Mom & Pop owned places anymore...
    Ebay Sellers, IOC, CyberWeld etc all have good pricing online and mostly free shipping.
