Blake submitted this awesome, self-explanatory tool. It’s a welding helmet. Shaped like a skull. With flames.
I don’t care who you are — that’s cool.
The bad news: It’s from Harbor Freight, which means that it’s probably a mediocre auto-darkening helmet. (I’ve used one of their cheapies like this — without the skull or flames — and it’d make an okay “second” helmet for guests in the shop, but I wouldn’t want to depend on it.)
The good news: It’s from Harbor Freight, which means it’s cheap as hell. Right now it’s running $80 — which means you could afford to pick up a “second” helmet for guests.
Just think of how cool it’ll be to look over at ’em and see a flaming skull grinning back at you. And since the smile’s permanently built into the helmet, your guest’ll give you a big grin even if you screw the weld up. Rock.
