  • Newbie with a new helmet and a question

    Hi,
    1st post so be gentle...
    I have a new Northern auto darkening helmet but it seems a bit too sensitive. I put it on and lift my head a little and it autodarkens. When I put my head down it will go light until I start welding (I'm new at that as well so...)

    Do I need to 'charge' the solar cells and leave it in sunlight for a while?

    Thanks,
    Ray.

    What kind of overhead lighting do you have? Is the hood's sensitivity adjustable? You may just have to live with the inconvenience of a cheap model. Assuming you have their cheap $42 one, I don't see anything in the manual about adjusting sensitivity.

    Links to exact products for which you are asking questions would be helpful to have in your post.

      Hi,

      Thanks for the suggestion about specific models etc. Yes, that's the helmet.
      The shop is a little bright. I turned off one of the overheads and the situation improved. I guess I'll just have to keep my head down and keep workin'

      Thanks,
      Ray.
