The Series 80 does throw in a kink, so actually cutting just behind the knob and welding back could be the answer for that. A thin cut off disc, careful measurements and alignment required. :P Have a spare on hand just in case.

I second what Jerry said. Aging eyes has made my welding an increasing challenge over the years.
About a year ago I broke down and bought an auto darkening helmet and "cheater lens" Oh my God it makes so much difference in the quality of my welds. For a while I thought it was mostly just losing the touch when it was really losing the eyes! .....

Log,
Thank you sir.

Junior,
Best bet is to bring your welding helmet to your local welding supply, assuming you have one. Find the best one for your eyes and make sure it fits your gear.
They aren't expensive. I think mine was about $5-6 bucks.

Another thing that helps is using a light lens. Not being so dark helps alot. When welding for short periods of time you dont need a dark lens like a guy who welds all day for a living.
