Cheater Lens ( welding)

Post by Andy Chaos » Sun Feb 12, 2017 6:52 pm

Has anyone had any experience of these magnified lenses for welding masks.
I have just bought a 2 x magnification lens but not sure if it will be too much. At only a fiver a time it should save me a fortune in flap disks tidying up welds that weren't any where near where they were supposed to be. :roll:

HaHa, I feel your pain. I had almost given up Tig welding steel as with the "high freak" only on to start the weld, I had almost no idea what I was doing or where I was going. I also bought a 2x lens for mine and now it looks like I know what I'm doing again. <1011

Does it take away the need for reading glasses?

Probably BUT, since I had cataract surgery, I can't focus on squat at close up so I leave my glasses on now. Cataract surgery is great for looking a mile down the road and really helps night vision. People that didn't need glasses to read with before are gonna be POed though imo.

I thought I told you about the lenses Andy.

Yes Stan, no surgery yet, but glasses and the strongest cheater lens they do sure does help. Only trouble is, six - twelve inch range is wonderful, arms length and I'm back in the fog :cry:
