Re: dialing in your welder feed rate setting
With my old auto darkening helmet I learned to always tested the lens first by flicking the flint of a lighter in front of the lens to see if it darkened.
When it became totally unreliable I bought the new one.
Right around that same time I started using the Halogen light trick too.
Now I just face the helmet at the halogen light to test the lens.
I just went out to check the manufacturer of my old, unreliable helmet. No name brand helmet with a Jackson brand auto lens.
