If its the one I'm thinking of, its not really a helmet but more of a shield that you hold in front of you. Not very fun to operate with, but works fine for spectators...(I let my wife use one so she can watch when she is so inclined)

not very fun at all...it would be nice if i had to hands to steady the rod...make a better weld...

funny you should say that...my sister said she should get a mask so she can look...i will give her my shield and get a real helmet...she kept havin to turn around...2 seconds later "you can look" cause i welded the electrode to the metal

ha! its a pain...you have to jiggle it to get it loose and it pulls the metal out of place (if its not tacked yet) and it knocks the metal out of the clamp

Easy way to fix it is to unclip it and remove the trode

No fuss

Stick is not hard to learn. I would suggests to get a auto darkening helmet, since you can see when your try to strike an arc. If i could afford it I would get a inverter with all three in one welder so i could mig, stick, and tig weld with it.
