UPDATE....

Improved lighting by trying this in the sunshine on a bright day (LED lights to follow). And cleaned the helmet, replaced the protective lens, and bought the cheater lens.

What ya know, I can see! Welds are much better. Not as pretty as they could be, but at least don't look like boogers or something!

I thank you all for your help. As does the collection of grinders in my shop.

Tim

:thmbsup: Way to go, Tim. I'm glad your welds are no longer a fecal matter. [ :rofl: ]

Happy New Year!

getting old,
i was at a friends house the other day and the subject of first cars came up, i said my first car was a 1937 rover 14 sports.
his 20 something daughter then asked if i was born before 1920, i know i am no spring chicken but i am sure i don't look 100 years old, maybe i do, i feel like it sometimes.

@john hennessy
You've been living in the desert a long time, John. Maybe desiccation has taken over and you just look 100 (sort of mummy-like)?

Don't worry, with all the humidity in Florida, you'll eventually rehydrate.

Cheers, and Happy New Year!
