    Default soldering glasses

    Anyone know of a pair of glasses i could use to take the glare off when soldering. The brightness is giving me migraines. i don't want anything that would stop me from seeing what's going on.

    It is probably a mistake to use any old tinted glasses, which might encourage you to stare at the flame without protecting against infra red and ultra violet
    There are safety glasses for welding and kiln work here, suggest you choose shade 3:

    Is the higher the shade number the darker the lens?

    Yes, and the problem I have, is that I really need to see the solder flow. This is already diminished by my grade 3 clipons, which I bought for my adventures with kiln enamelling. A grade that was suggested on the Prometheus website. Dennis.
