    Been thinking about this thread lately.

    I picked up this at Home Depot to run sanding disc on my 4" grinder. Makes metal finishing nice and sanding disc are cheaper then flap disc

    I've got a hood that uses 2" x 4 1/4" lens that I have a lot of fixed shade and 2 auto lens I throw in it that's nice and lightweight and the lens are cheap. When I'm welding in a tight spot like crammed under a car with your body wrapped around an axle and you don't have much room for a regular hood, I put a lens in a pair of cutting goggles. I'm not good with shutting the eyes and turning my head to tack or weld.

    That's a cool idea with the lens, I run into the big bulky hood in the way issue a lot.

    Ya I've got a speedglas that's my nice auto and it's like wearing a space helmet trying to get into tight places, has no flex at all with it. I need to grab another pair of goggles that has the flip down lens on it and I'll just leave a fixed shade in it. I've gotten into a lot of situations where the auto sensors will get blocked and it will flash you.

    Both of those are awesome ideas Steve. I dropped a lot of money (for a college student) on flap discs over my 5 year stay. And I also bitched a bunch while wearing my speedglass under the Jeep.
