are solar eclipse glasses safe to use for welding?
yeah why not
These were safe enough to get your mom not pregnant.
You just have weak sperm.
Solar eclipse glasses are safe enough for the brief time that you use them. Over time welding though they will get scratched and burn through. What they are is a plastic film with a metal coating on them.

Real number 11 Walters classes are much more durable it is attenuated by the composition of the glass and can't be scratched off.
Your face will burn
I am kind of an expert in this field.
...a decent pair should block UV. UV is also the main problem with welding.
You're going to be limited by the equivalent shade value. Solar glasses are rated pretty high (minimum shade 14 is required for solar viewing). A piece of welding glass is like $5, so why bother?
fuck it, it's only your eyes
AvE did a video about this a few years ago where he tested regular safety glasses and surprisingly they blocked out the UV completely. Turns out it's the actual glass in the welding glass that does the heavy lifting blocking UV, the tint is just for the brightness of the arc.
You'd be retarded not to just buy a proper welding mask though

Absolutely not.
until they melt, get broken or a spark hits them. that shit is really fragile
The tint blocks IR, it is also vital or you literally cook your retinas. Less likely to get cancer from it but you go blind all the same.
Absolutely not. That said, the guy who showed me how to weld just squinted his eyes

I doubt it. i have seen moon crickets tape cardboard around a cell phone put the whole thing on a popsicle stick and use that, led in the screens have a limited range, but the leds in the camera also have a limited range.
gooks that make shipping containers put the face mask on a stick like some eyes wide shut.
You're running on all cylinders to come up with that one. No pic. No meme? Just 'bla bla bla, i'm not creative'.
