1. The Invention (2nd of 3)
The problems the inventor(s) wanted to solve In usual single window masks, welder must remove or tilt back the entire mask in order to view his work. Also, breathing therethough is uncomfortable and leads to fogging of the single lens from the breath’s condensed moisture.
Description. This weldmask is fitted with two lens windows: a dark lens is mounted forward of the eyes of the viewer and a clear lens extends obliquely away from across the top of the dark lens towards the face of the wearer. the front panel of the mask is provided with a perpendicularly projecting breathing port aligned with the welder’s nose with 3 filtered passageways for allowing air to flow therefrom.
Presentation. Comprising a curved shell adapted to shield the face and provided with one clear and one dark lens windows to view the workpiece respectively prior to welding and during l plus a breathing port fitted with passagewarys for allowing air to flow therefrom.
Fields of application. Arc welding
Advantages To view the workpiece prior to welding through the clear lens window, a wearer need only tilt his head a little distance forward, without the necessity of using both his hands. To counteract lens fogging and for welder’s increased breathing comfort, the front panel of the mask is provided with a perpendicularly projecting breathing port aligned with the welder’s nose with 3 filtered passageways for allowing air to flow therefrom.
