    Digital elite questions

    Hello I have the digital elite stars and stripes 3 and I recently noticed in my stick welding class that I see 3 electrodes the main one one to the left and one to the right is there a problem with the plastic lenses and is it a safety issue how do I possibly fix it?

    I had a double arc issue with my pro hobby and Miller said it was because of the contour of the clear lens. Apparently some people have issues with this. I bought the Elite and the issue went away. Not sure if this could be the same issue you are having just with the Elite. The Elite is flatter than the Hobby but may be a similar issue. I would call Miller and ask what they think. It could be something as simply as batteries but why pay for new ones if it is something else, phone call is cheaper. Now not to be a jerk but did you take the plastic coating off the cover lenses. I think we have all forgotten to do that at least once.

    It is not unusual to see other images.
    Just focus on your welding and you will not notice that other image.
    All welding helmets have that problem especially if you have multiple lenses etc.

    I used a clear lens on front,
    I also used a magnifier lens in the back.

    Miller Elite does have the provision to use a magnifier lens. Very nice.


    When the young men ask how you get such good looking welds
    don't tell them that the magnifier lens really helps. Just joking.
    The only thing that prevents some welders from using a magnifier lens is their ego.
    I started using one at age 24 and kept using one until age 55.
