    Looks great 👍.
    A lot better looking than a old 5 gal paint can.

    Very nice, SweetMK…that is a very colorful helmet bag. Your wife must be talented! If it works, it is good! My new helmet has a Lincoln bag included with it. I got the Lincoln backpack so I could put the welding hood and the rest of my protective gear, and any other small items I might need into one easy to carry unit. I think the Lincoln bag will fit right in, and be at home in a welding school setting.

    Definitely!
    I was in welding school 40 years ago and showing
    up with a backpack would have been bizarre. Now
    office workers use them for briefcases and electricians
    use them to carry tools. I’m not surprised people carry
    welding gear in them. We just stuffed our cape sleeves/bib
    and gloves in the Fibre-Metal helmet and carried chipping
    hammer brush separately.safety glasses in pocket.
    Enough about the old days.

    the instructor will prolly move you to the front of the class!!

    backpacks are for girls and even if you are a girl don't do that.

    you don't wanna be THAT kid that shows up for first grade in a cute little suit and tie.

    So... I when I was in middle school... around 6th grade or so, this kid from South America moved here... I forgot his name, started with a "P". I think it was "Paulo" or something like that. I dunno.

    Either way, he wore a suit to school every day. Full suit and tie. Thinking about it now, he looked like a small Barrack Obama. Look at a picture of Barry-O and picture him as a South American 6th grader.

    Skipping to the end of the story, I think he got expelled and maybe want to juvenile detention for... "touching".

    Anyway, that's my story about wearing a suit and tie to public school.

    I have the lincoln welders backpack. Got it for free from a welding conference I attended. Great bag for throwing your hood and a few tools in to go do a quick job, or in my case go to a site and give a weld test. I wouldn't pay what they want for it though. A lot of the young guys coming out of trade school are using this bag or whatever equivalent. I certainly wouldn't expect this bag to store all the tools needed for a serious job.
    Use whatever ya like. Hell, use a couple of grocery sacks if thats what ya have.

    Re: Lugging equipment to school

    I was just thinking that you might walk into a shop where all the machines are blue, and you have a red back pack ! I dont think its all that big a deal, not like showing up at a formal dinner dressed in a halloween costume. I got the optrel back pack for my sellstrom auto dark helmet. I don't put my good hoods in the bucket with the other tools anymore, it stays nicer much longer. The pack was about $37 from Grainger, I'm happy with it. I tried to keep it(the hood) in the original box when not in use ( the fibre metal on the argon tank is the shop hood.) but it wore out. I used a plastic bag for a while, but it got dirty, and I worried that someone would throw it out.

    Good luck with your class

    That might be a little overkill for a beginning welder, just showing up for his first welding school classes. Although, I have been toying with the idea of converting one of my trailers into a mobil rig! Of course, then I would want to get an engine drive unit…maybe a Miller Bobcat 260 or a Lincoln Ranger. I can run my Miller 215 from my generator, but only have enough amps from that generator to give me about 85% of full capacity, and the Miller 215 is not recommended for 6010 electrodes. I does a great job with MIG though. The Lincoln backpack and 3350 helmet are on the FedEx truck slated for delivery today, so I’ll post a pic when it arrives later today.

    Just add a gasoline welder and your read to do welding.
    The truck 🚚 may have one inside with bottles 🍼.

    Would it be ok to use 6013 on that?

    The Lincoln back pack came in today- rugged construction for sure, military grade 1680 denier nylon. The Viking 3350 also arrived. I can say this, that 6X headgear is really nice. I think I'm gonna be happy.

    I've a 2450 I bought last year and it came with the same bag. I use that when I have to bring my hood into the shop from home, carry my gloves and respirator in the little pouch. Works good.

    i have the same hood and it is one of my favorites.

    i bought it on sale at least 10 years and i think i've replaced the battery only once or twice.
