The new Realtree design camouflage pattern on Miller Electrics' Arc Armor auto-darkening welding helmet is sure to appeal the outdoor and hunting enthusiast. It features three arc sensors, a quick-release front cover lens holder with a rubber spatter gasket, and lens controls conveniently located at the bottom of the lens. These helmets also include Miller's Auto-On and Grind Mode features.

Kinky Neat
Taking an engine from here and a radiator from there and trying to find premolded hoses to mate them together can be an exercise in futility. Unicoil, a universal alternative to premolded or custom hoses, allows you to bend straight hoses into most any shape. Simply slide it over a hose to wherever a bend is needed (and with only hand pressure) and shape as required-up to 90 degrees without kinking. The Unicoil is made of stainless steel to ensure reliability even under the harshest conditions. Products range in size from 0.25- to 1-inch in diameter and work with most standard hoses, including water, air, emissions, and oil.
