  • Nex Gen 3N1

    I just bought the jackson 3n1 Nex Gen. It has plenty of features. Variable shade , grind and torch modes. Have tried it on stick and mig, lent it to a friend for low amp tig he said it was great.
    I do have 1 gripe with it. I seen ghost images in certain positions. While welding overhead I tip the visor forward and the image is not as clear and I see another shadow of the same image. I have never had this with any standard type visor.

    There is a gap between the protective cover plates and the LCD cartridge and I am wondering if this is what is causing the distortion.

    I have a Jackson EQC Master Variable HTLS for over a year now. No ghosts at all, There is also a gap on mine, I am guessing you have the lens in a shadow helmet. I was looking at that same helmet as a replacement for mine, as Aaron says, talk with the dealer and let us know.

        I've got the same helmet too, with no problems. Only use it with tig though. Call Jackson and I'm sure they will replace the lens.

          thanks for the replies about the helmet, I think I will send them an e mail and see what they have to say.
