Eye protection and soldering


#1

I have always used an acetylene/atmospheric air torch. I just
purchased an oxy/acet. torch (Smith versa-torch). I need to get some
eye protection. What shade lense should I use with this setup? I
wear prescription glasses. Where can I buy prescription glasses with
the appropriate shading? What about didymeum lenses? I know they
will make things look great, but will they provide the necessary
protection to my eyes while soldering?

Thanks for your input!

Didymium or enhanced didymium (such as our AUR-92) will work just
fine with oxy-acetylene torches.
