3M™ Speedglas™ 9100 FX Welding Helmet - 9100XX Auto Darkening Lens 06-0600-30SW

The new 9100XX FX welding helmet combines legendary Speedglas™ quality and auto darkening technology with an innovative wide-view grinding visor to give welders an all-in-one solution for more flexibility, precision, and efficiency. The exceptionally clear, wide grinding visor offers a greater field of view in all directions, while a smooth flip-up pivot mechanism assures effortless transition from welding to grinding modes.

New front air exhaust vents help reduce fogging, and highly adjustable suspension and well-balanced design enhance the well-known Speedglas top performance and comfort qualities.

Speedglas™ 9100 FX Helmet Features
  • Exceptionally large, 8" x 4.25" protective visor with 105 degree of viewing angle significantly increases user's field of view in all directions.
  • Smooth flip-up pivot mechanism allows for effortless one-handed use and quick transition between welding and grinding modes.
  • SideWindows with exclusive Shade 5 filters allow you to see others working around you.
  • Front and side air exhaust vents help minimize fogging and enhance comfort, particularly during extended use.
  • Includes spark deflector. Also, optional flame-resistant extended ear and neck protection accessory is available for added protection from welding hazards.
  • Compatible with all 3M™ Speedglas™ 9100 Auto Darkening Filters (ADF).
  • Compatible with most 3M disposable respirators and select 3M reusable respirators.

    Speedglas™ 9100XX Auto Dark Lens Features
  • Viewing area 12.11 sq in
  • Magnification made easy. The new magnifying lens holder, on the inside face of the welding helmet, makes lens installation easier and more adjustable.
  • Seven user selectable dark shades: shade 5 for gas welding/cutting, shade 8 for microplasma and low amp TIG welding and shade 9 to 13 for most other types of arc welding.
  • The tack welding comfort mode uses an intermediate light state (shade 5). If a follow-up arc is not struck within two seconds, the welding filter switches to the normal light state (shade 3). The comfort mode may help reduce eye fatigue resulting from the eye constantly needing to adjust to differing light levels during tack welding.
  • The delay function allows the user to set the dark-to-light switching time.
  • Sensitivity of arc detection can be adjusted to provide reliable switching for a wide range of arc welding processes, amperages and situations. And you now can lock in any shade: the light shade for grinding or other non-welding activities, or one of the dark shades to have it function as a passive welding filter.

    Comes complete with
  • Speedglas™ 9100 FX welding helmet with 9100XX auto dark lens
  • Side Windows with removable covers
  • Speedglas™ Helmet storage bag
  • Replacement sweatband
  • 3 Outside protection plates

    A lot of complaints about the helmet not staying up. Does anyone know that the left and right knobs have different functions? Left is parking and right is friction. Overtightening the left one won't let it park. Shame on 3M for not making this obvious.
    1 Answers
    You are correct.. When the 9100 helmets were introduced there was no mention of these adjustments in the owners manual.. About a year ago Speedglas began including instruction form # 06-0400-52 which addresses the adjustment for the helmet pivots.. This form is now included with all 9100 series helmets.

    Best hoods ever
    I see a lot of folks having troubles with the detent, I have been using these helmets for a very long time. Guess I have been lucky, never had the problem. If you have access to a machinist (doesn't even have to be a good one) have him turn down some aluminum round stock and cut some threads into it. Honestly never even looked at them but don't see why it couldn't be done. Personally never had a problem that stopped me from using it, I have bought 3 so far 2- 9100, 1- 9100 FX. Lenses are a bit pricey, for the most part the companies I work for have sprung the bill.
    Prosclarity, response, field of view, flip up for grinding, vents to exhale out of the hood, ergonomic, the Velcro protective cover over the head and really only a few positions that have covered the sensors keeping the hood from turning on.
    ConsThe rear tensioning mechanism wont tighten as much as I would like at times especially welding upside down but still does the job.

    Nice but not $519.45 nice :(
    I've listen to many of the other reviews and i know what they mean. There is too much ergonomics inside them it seems to make a good thing gone bad. The adjustment knobs just don't support the flip shield because it is too heavy for them. As far as the lens goes, yeah it has a pretty lime color but as soon as you strike an arc it's like welding with my old Miller again. If you like Miller hoods save yourself some dough and buy the Miller Titanium. If your looking for a high def lens you can't go wrong with a Jackson hood with the Amber true sight lens.

    Good Hood, but def needs some RE-engineering though
    I purchased this welding hood about a year ago, it sat for about a month before I could get it mounted to a hard hat, which when I did, had to be customized a lot so that it would stay in the upright position, and not fall into my face. I called 3M personally and they said they could send me another hard hat adapter, which is the same hard hat adapter used on OLD SCHOOL fiber metal hoods, once again that do not work on this hood. So biggest disappointment is that the hood had to be customized quite extensively to work mounted on a hard hat, problem being that the width of the hard had does not allow the front to flip up correctly, and allow for ease of use.
    Prosexcellent viewing area, periphrial view is a little tricky getting used to but is very nice to have when working on scaffolding and welding with other workers in near vicinity, ease of changing outside cover lens is also a plus.
    Consdoes not mount to hard hat correctly, after getting it mounted for hard hat use the front lens does not flip up correctly, cleaning the inside of the auto shade is next to impossible unless you take out the grinding shield to reach "through" the grinding shield to wipe excess dust and debris off the inside of the auto shade. changing the grinding lens and inside lens of the auto shade is bit of a pain in arse. Also last but not least the weight of this thing is not good, it is a very heavy helmet to be having hanging off the front of your head all day, be prepared for a stiff neck and shoulders. personally, if i knew how much i was going to have to modify before i could use it i dont think i would have spent 600 on a welding hood.

    Will not stay up for me!
    I have had the same problems as the other poster. After about 3 months of use I found that the helmet would not stay up no matter how tight I made the tension controls (detents) that connect the headgear to the hood. Finally the screw broke on one of them (which is made out of plastic) in the middle of my shift. I had to weld with one hand and hold the helmet up to my face with the other. I called 3M and they sent me a new set to install. I had to weld with my passive lens Fibremetal for 3 days until the new detents arrived. I installed them and they worked for 5 days until the same thing happened in the middle of my shift again. It wouldn’t stay up no matter how much I tightened the detents. The plastic screw broke on one of them again also. Unfortunately, I did not learn my lesson the first time this happened. I didn’t bring a spare hood, and again I found myself welding with one hand while holding the broken Speedglas with the other. I called 3M for a second time and had a discussion with a representative in the warranty department about the grievances I had with this detent problem. They acknowledged that this was a problem and were in the process of implementing a solution to fix the detents. I explained to the rep how upset I was about the money I paid for it and that I need to use the helmet while they’re working on a solution. He pacified me by sending me a whole bag of the defective detents. As of now I only have one set left and I have stopped using the hood. I had one set out of the bag only last me a day. I told the representative that the detents should be made out of a metal, but he responded by saying that their most common complaint from welders is weight, and they have to keep the weight down by using plastic. I’m going to call 3M again tomorrow to see if they have released the new and improved detents. Don’t get me wrong; this is a great helmet. . . . . .when it works it saves me a lot of time because I do a lot of grinding. I love the lens. The headgear is second to none, and I personally do not find it heavy at all. I’ve already had this helmet on for 10 hours straight. Its so comfortable I could sleep in it. Unfortunately, this problem with the detents renders it completely useless to me. Until 3M fixes the problem, the 9100FX gets one star from me.

    Not so happy...
    Well after using my old huntsman p51 hood for over ten years I was so excited to get this hood but that soon turned to disappointment when the hood would not stay in the upright position the head gear only has the detente lock on one side ... it looks well made but just will not hold the helmet up ... so in trying to get it to stay up I have tightened the side screws until one broke ... now my new five hundred hood is just sitting and I am using my ten year old hood ... I have sent cyberweld a email three days ago and have not got a response ................... My hope is that the head gear in my helmet is broke and a new head gear will fix it ... looks like I will need to spend moor cash to find out .
    ProsHead gear is comfortable . The digital leans is unbelievable clear you can see whe weld like never before . The clear outside plate is fast and easy to change . The hood looks nice . The hood is not any heavier than other top hoods even with the grinding flip up added .
