Lincoln Viking Welding Helmets Promotions!

Baker’s Gas and Welding is offering a limited time sale (including free shipping) on Lincoln’s popular Viking Welding helmets that are ideal for both professional and hobby welders. These auto-darkening helmets are durable and effective for a wide variety of applications.

Most welders can expect to pay over $250 for a top of the line welding helmet, but Lincoln Electric’s huge sale at Baker’s Gas and Welding has slashed prices up to $100 and has priced some of the best welding helmets on the market well below $200. If you want to upgrade your old welding helmet or you want to get into welding with a rugged helmet, now is the time to strike. Here’s a bit more about the different kinds of welding helmets on sale.

The Lincoln VIKING 3350 Black Welding Helmet

This solar-powered auto-darkening helmet is one of the best-selling, most highly rated welding helmets at Baker’s Gas and Welding. It comes with a ton of features and offers the capacity to add a cheater lens, magnifying lens, or hardhat adaptor. The solar powered feature ensures you’ll never run out of power when you need to work and the auto-darkening feature engages the shade as soon as you strike an arc.

You’ll have continuous internal shade control that ranges from 6-13 so that you can grind or weld at a variety of settings and use a variety of welding processes, such as MIG, TIG, or stick welding.

It comes with a bandana for welding in warm settings and a carrying bag that will save it from scratches and dents when you’re on the road. Lastly, its massive 3.74 x 3.34 inch viewing area is one of the largest viewing areas among all welding helmets.

Lincoln 2450 Viking Welding Helmet

If you want to spend a little less on your helmet and hope to keep things simple, check out the Lincoln 2450 Viking Welding helmet. You’ll give up some shade options, as it only offers 9-13 shades along with grind mode, and the viewing area is slightly smaller with its 3.82″ x 2.44″ view size.

However, you still get a great auto-darkening welding helmet with four arc sensors, offering a great bargain for the hobby or part time welder. It has all of the same basic features found in the 3350 Lincoln Viking Welding helmet: cheater lens capacity, carrying case, hard had adaptor, and internal shade control.

Most of Lincoln’s Viking helmets are quite light, weighing around 20 oz. like the 2450 helmet. That will save on neck strain and help you weld for longer periods of time without stopping.

Lincoln Viking 1840 Welding Helmet

For hobby welders who won’t be working out of position too often and aren’t quite as concerned about getting flashed while welding, the Lincoln Viking 1840 Welding Helmet offers an affordable option that is extremely light (weighing a breezy 18 oz.) and easy to use. You’ll only have two arc sensors, but if you’re not crawling under a car or pipeline all day, you may not need more than two.

You’ll get many of the same features as the other Viking welding helmets, but there are some differences that professional welders may notice. For instance, the viewing area isn’t quite as high as the other Viking welding helmets, limiting the viewing area to 3.78″ x 1.85″. That’s fine for most hobby welders, but a professional may want to upgrade to a larger size. In addition, if you’re planning to weld on a regular basis as a professional or highly involved hobby welder, the Solar-powered, non-replaceable battery is a major drawback for the long term.

You can still add a cheater lens, use the carrying bag, and make all of the other modifications Lincoln’s welding helmets offer. The price differences with Lincoln’s helmets often boil down to the higher priced helmets offering more arc sensors and lens options, while the lower priced helmets offer fewer arc sensors and lens options. Those are most often the differences between a welder being a professional or weekend hobby welder, but there’s a chance that many hobby welders on the weekend will want to use a professional grade helmet for their serious projects.
