I'm very new to welding and I'm having some issues getting good welds. My main issue is the arc is so bright I can't see the target I'm welding or the puddle. I've tried a few different helmets and I'm currently using a Vulcan auto darkening one. I've played with the settings and currently it's set on the darkest setting. Once my helmet darkens I'm basically guessing as to where I run the tip and sometimes miss my target area or don't a good puddle or penetration. This makes me have to go back over it again and again. I've watched some videos on helmet setting adjustments but they don't seem to be working for me. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Should I get a non auto darkening helmet? I really want to practice to get better but it's frustrating.
