I just got a MIG conversion for a Lincoln weldpak-100. I am using .025" wire with a 75/25 mix. It is so much nicer than welding with fluxcore on thin sheet metal.
I was wondering what shade of glass you would recomend. I bought a flip face helmet a while ago, and was given a piece of glass for it. I was using .030" fluxcore wire then, and it was a bit brighter. Is it safe to go a shade lighter so I can see the puddle more easily? I do not know the shade of the glass I have now, hence my query. I am concerned about safety, as I got some burn on my chest where my overalls were slightly parted. There is much more radiation getting through than with the fluxcore. If this means I should keep the current glass, which works well, I will do so.
Thank you for your time.
