Just one more question, for now. ;-) lol .. I was not able to afford the nice didymium that fit over my glasses. I purchased some #5 lense torching glasses. I find that I am able to see well enough, but I am not really able to visualize the flame. It is even worse with a bright light nearby. Do the Didymium glasses make a difference to this?

Those are Welding Glasses right?  What torch are you using?

Yes they are mainly used for soldering and cutting metal. I am using a propane hot head style torch.

So I have finally figured out this question and figured I would make a post just in case anyone else encounters this issue. There is a HUGE difference between the green shade #3 and the Didymium glasses. I was able to purchase a new pair if the ACE 202 Didymium glasses.. Thanks Devardi!!! With the new glasses I am able to see the glass and flame much better and have less problems with overheating glass. Also it reduces the sodium flare significantly. All in all I am quite excited to get to torching!![wink]

I went through the same thing when I started... trying to use Welding Glasses for Didy's!  Yikes, such a difference.  And I hear that Rose Colored Didy's let you see color best.   But Devardi has the best prices on everything!
