I want to purchase my son a welding helmet that is best for welding galvanized steel. The fumes make him sick and he is new to the trade. It is going to be a present so I don't want to ask him which is best. Any suggestions?? thank you so much for your help. kimmy

Typically, a welding helmet will not protect someone from dangerous fumes, unless the helmet has a respirator that comes with it. The best way for your son to be protected from welding fumes is to use a respirator (personal mask/filter) and to weld in an environment where there is a constant flow of fresh air.

Here are some options for respirators: http://www.bakersgas.com/respirators.html. I hope that helps!

Whenever you are working with galvanized steel it is important that you take the necessary steps when prepping the metal before welding.
