But if i buy it i would pay full Canada and Quebec taxes,,, cross border fees... blablabla, and i dont see they ship to Canada...

But if i get it from a motogeek member and send it as a gift it worth it for me :-D

Jim, those here are very expenssive never seen something under 250$ here :frustrated:

I'm reviving this thread.
So those of you that have used both the cheaper Chinese variety (Harbor Freight, etc) and the more expensive professional units. Is it worth the price if your not welding professionally?

The one I WANT is this SpeedGlass unit. But at $175 its a little pricey.

HarborFreight would be 1/3 the price with this one.

I hear SpeedGlass is pretty much the Audi of Welding helmets. (Or Maybe the Volvo since its made in Sweden). And I know there are many other brands that are probably of similar quality. Thats not the point. Point is whether they justify the cost.
Cost IS an object. I'm Thinking maybe its overkill and Harbor Freight might work just as well. Reading the posts above seems many are happy with the cheaper stuff. Just wondering if anyone has revised thoughts.

Not that I weld much at the moment, but my buddy does and he has been using a HF auto-dim for a long time. Money is tight for him too and when we were at PRI we hit up the Miller booth and tried some auto-dark helmets. He decided to buy a nicer one immediately (the >$200 one) because it is so much better. That was with show prices too. You can get a good Miller one for under $200 tho. If speedglass is comparable, sounds like a good deal and probably worth it if you do an appreciable amount of work even at a hobby level.
