Forms of welding have been around for centuries, but lucky for us, the art of joining pieces of metal together is no longer as complicated as heating and hammering by a blacksmith. However, more modern types of welding bring hazards to the job, like dangerous light emissions. That’s why Lincoln Electric offers their new Viking StreetRod 2450 Welding Helmet. Not only does this piece of equipment protect your eyes from damage with its auto-darkening feature, it is also lightweight and comes with several lenses for use in a variety of areas.
