When mine packed up I called into the local welding suppliers and asked for replacement battery or solar powered screen. he said it would be cheaper to buy another helmet for 20. he did say if its not use a lot don't put it back in the box as the solar panel keeps the battery topped up!

Still underpowered then?
It's not bad, after adjusting the fuel screw to give a small amount more fuel, and adjusting the govenor it pulls like a train and does not smoke.
Can cruise at 65 or 70 no problem, and loads of torque which the aircooled lacked.

Quite honestly, I do very little welding these days, and when I do it's rarely of a prolonged nature, so I have sent for an "E" Bay 'special' and see how I go on with that, worst case scenario would be its junk, but at a price I can't complain over, so..... Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy...cheers, Morrag

For those that message me about it, no I haven't stopped working on the Pop Smiley
Had a couple of weeks holiday, but now I'm back in the garage every afternoon.
I've been smoothing the joints in the chassis with a smear of filler, (quite a lot of it's on show when it's roadworthy), so am sanding all that, then I'll prime it with a coat of red oxide.
Wasn't happy with the brush painted finish on the back end of the chassis, even after tedious amounts of prep between each coat. So I've had the litre of gloss black I had, decanted into aerosol cans & will try spraying it, although that won't be an easy job with the cab fitted -lots of careful masking up & probably a bit of retouching afterwards.

That's exactly the same as the sealy one I had, I did manage to rip it apart but gave up, tbh I don't remember why. Maybe the battery was difficult to find a replacement.

If the battery is installed before dispatch, then there must be a way of changing it, surely? let me know what you discover Dave................. Huh Huh
It's a matter of getting into it. Don't think I can pry it apart without damage.  It's a sealed unit. The sensitivity potentiometer needs a tap occasionally so really needs cleaning/replacing but the tint control and screen etc. are still good so it might be worth trying one day. but probably easier to just buy a replacement adjustable solar lens. Lots on Fleabay but be wary, sight is precious.
Price varies from about 8 for a basic one to 280 for a Speedglas  Shocked but you should be able to find one with changeable batteries etc. for a reasonable price.

I bought a helmet from R Tech where I got my TIG from. It cost about 50 and has a replaceable 'button' battery. The size of a 2p.
You know when the battery is on the way out when the lens delay slows slightly. Not enough for arc eye but noticeable.
