Accu-Strike Hands Free Chin Operated Welding Helmet
A better alternative to Light Activated - Auto Dark helmets
Dark before the arc, not after....
All Helmets come with a regular ratchet headgear or can be ordered with a Hard Hat.
Each of these helmets will give you hands-free visor operation. Think of the time you could save if you didn't have to raise and lower your welding helmet by hand before each weld. With the Accu-Strike welding helmet, you can keep both hands on your work--and operate your visor just by raising and lowering your jaw. (1/4" or less) Less body movement means fewer missed strikes and faster, more productive welding. You can see your work clearly without raising the entire helmet. You get a clean, accurate strike the first time. And if you weld in tight spots or in high places, the Accu-Strike helmet can not only save time--it can help you prevent injury. Depending upon your situation, welding speed can double using the Accu- Strike helmet. At that rate, the helmet will pay for itself in a matter of days! Since the helmet stays down while you're working, side flash problems are virtually eliminated. Only the visor flips up and down--giving a welder a clear view of the weld without being subjected to the arcs of co-workers nearby. There are now over 100,000 helmets sold, and they are being used in bodyshops, tool & die, ornamental Iron shops, repair shops, muffler shops, construction, etc. If you can use a free hand while welding then try this helmet!

How it Works:
The chin strap operates the visor. Lower the jaw slightly and open the visor effortlessly! The amount of jaw movement controls the amount of opening. Release chin pressure and the visor closes in place. Visor can also be locked open for grinding or extended viewing. A slight (adjustable) nod of the head closes the visor. The Accu-Strike helmet is fully adjustable to fit all welders. Comfort, accuracy, speed, and safety are good reasons to buy the Accu-Strike welding helmet. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. Meets A.N.S.I. standards. (Important safety information regarding lenses: The Accu-Strike helmet is inspected as a welding helmet and safety shield. It is very important to use Cherokee brand replacement lenses. There are a few companies selling cast resin lenses that will break on impact, so please ask for Cherokee Lenses or order them from our products page)

The Accu-Strike helmet is formed of a high strength polycarbonate--lightweight yet strong and durable. It can be worn comfortably all day with little or no fatigue. The visor contains a 3" x 5 1/4" polycarbonate shaded lens shielded by a clear polycarbonate lens. Behind these replaceable lenses is another replaceable lens of clear impact-resistant polycarbonate for protection while chipping or grinding. The view window is large enough to be used easily by bifocal wearers.

Not only is the Accu-Strike dark before the arc is struck it also gives you a clear lens to view through when positioning parts or grinding. Guaranteed long term eye protection with more features then any helmet, all at a price not much more then conventional helmets.
As one welder so eloquently put it: This helmet cuts down on the cussing.
My Mission Statement
I worked as a welder for six years in piece work production and three years in fabricating, so I know what it's like to work all day with a welding helmet on your head. I have tried to market some great innovations, some that I had used myself and knew they would make life easier and safer for others. I have tried for several years, but could not get the big wholesalers and distributors to promote great products for reasons like: Unless people ask for your product we can't order it, or we carry a competing product and make a much larger profit because they sell for a higher price. And the list goes on!!! Well, thanks to the Internet you can bookmark this site as your place to find great products the Big Wholesalers & Distributors don't think you need, or want to carry!
(I do have a few distributors who do a good job of promoting my products, so please check with them first or call for the dealer nearest you.)
