    Welding Glass ND Filter

    Hi Guys,

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with welding glass as an ND filter. I have been reading around online that it seems to be a very cost effective alternative, just wanting peoples opinions on it.

    Cheers,

    S.

    There's been discussion in the past.
    From memory, color cast and optical quality (it's usually quite un-flat) were the main issues.
    Also, there were a couple of different grades, both in oxy-welding goggles and in arc/mig/tig ones.

    Oh, that's not to say it's counted out.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    An interesting idea

    I watched wire melting through those for years (a welder in a past life), it's not going to cost
    ya much to have a play, bit of duct tape/bluetack and you're laughing -




    Cheers ...
    People are usually shocked when they find out I'm not a very good electrician.
    CC more than welcome..."I can't be offended" so go for it. Also, feel free to post your ideas with an edit if ya have the time. Thanks......
