  • Lincoln Viking

    I think I am going to give one of the new Lincoln Viking helmets a shot. The new one has all the features of the Millers and Speedglas, just less $$$$. Anyone got a Lincoln?

    I have the viking helmet and love it. I originally bought one just for review after getting a string of emails about it. but after using it in my shop and comparing it to my other helmet, the Viking took over my favorite helmet status and I have used it ever since. I have a review with photos and video of it at the link below if details would be helpful.

          I often use the Viking in the open doorway of my garage/shop but in difrect sunlight later in the day and it works fine there. I've not done any full outdoors welding with it if that would be much different than the sun exposure I have in the overhead doorway.

            I've been thinking of going with one of the Viking helmets also. They have a new one with an even bigger view area being released next week. I've seen online prices around 220 for the new one. May just have to snag one.

                  Me too! Same place. I'm anxious to try it out. Now to find out what cheater lens I can order that fits it.

                    They sell the cheater lens. I got a couple when I ordered the helmet.

                      I bought a slightly used Viking last week. Tried it out for the first time today. I did a little stick welding outside in the yard and it worked great. I also did a little mig welding and plasma cutting. I found the helmet worked great mine has the smaller viewing area. I also used the cheater lense that came with it.

                          I missed that. But I was thinking that these fit the older helmets, not the brand new one we just ordered. I'm sure I can snag one locally after I get the thing in my hands and find out for sure what fits.

                            As an update: rep called me and said the Anchor magnifying lens will not work on that helmet as it is too thick. Have to go with a Lincoln.

                              Those who bought the Lincoln 3350: What do you think? How is the clarity? Headgear any good? Any other feedback?

                              At about $185. delivered it seems like a good deal.
