Welding helmets replacement parts.

Picked up an inexpesive welding helmet from Sears. Haven't had it but a few weaks and broke a part on it. the little tensioner screw the goes in the knob on the side. It's a little POS plastic screw that looks like a carriage bolt with about a 5/16" shoulder and 10/32 thread, over all about 1-1/4" long.

Tried Searching for the Maker of the helmet, Clarke, but couldn't find anything. I'd take it back to Sears But I painted the helmet.

If it comes down to it, I could probably machine one, but the time costs would be ridiculous.

anyone have a source for these little parts?

Re: Welding helmets replacement parts.

Hate to say it, but I really don't think you are gonna get just that part. Best you can hope for is getting the headset which should come with that part.
At least that is the case with the helmets I have. Have replaced a few headbands over the years.

That'll teach ya to paint it all up pretty.

See now why my hoods are all worn out and cruddy looking - nobody ever borrows 'em.
When kids (of all ages) grab a mask to "play watch the arc" with they always go for the cool looking one.

On a more serious note -
I think Tractor Supply carries Clarke stuff - they might be able to order small parts for it easier than Sears can/will.

Then again - painting it shouldn't effect the warranty. You only had it a few days and it broke - Sears might just replace it for you. I bet I would give it a try.

Re: Welding helmets replacement parts.

Ya, fo rthe cost of the helmet.. $19.95, compared to the cost of a replacement head band, I might as well just get another helmet I'm thinking. Heck, I think I saw them at Tracktor Supply for for $16 when I picked up your .035 tips... That way we can have a Kids helmet at the sho for the kids to look through.
