The Wens Lens Story
Not too long ago, I was just like you, buying my lenses online from someone I did not know. I was a welder for 23 years and was sick and tired of not having a lens that I could see through, so I decided to do something about it. Now, I don't claim to be perfect but we do strive to make sure that we do all we can to work in that direction. We are a small, family owned and operated business, dedicated to bringing the Best Cool Blue Welding Lens on the market today, to the hoods of every hard working welder ! I am a guy that will tell you what is on my mind and I won't beat around the bush about it. If this is unnerving to you well then you might want your girlfriend to help you if you need to. I feel it's only fair to be this way and I won't change who I am for any amount of money. So that being said don't ask me to watch what I say or do, It's America, and we do as we please here as long as we don't break the law. I did not work as hard as I have to let some corporate Yahoo(that's a technical term) tell me how to act.
We are proud that we now hold the only United States Patent for a "Cool Blue Welding Lens" in the world. I can guarantee you this; I spent 23 years under a hood and I will never forget where I came from and all the brothers of the hood that helped me get this business off the ground. I promise to always try our hardest to be fair in our business with you.
Thank you and May God bless you.

We provide Wens Lens & Aulektro Brand Welding Lenses. We have taken the AO Weld Cool lens of the past and redesigned it without Colbalt. It is a lens I am very proud of and have put a lot of time and money into developing. The front glass is a Dichroic Filter. These are reflection filters , not absorption filters. This means they do not get hot when doing their job. If they don't get hot they can maintain their integrity and that was the whole point. We made these out of borosilicate glass because it is strong and filters UV radiation to some extent by itself. When adding the metal coating to them we only found .0002 of a percent of harmful UV light coming through our lens while welding. You get more UV radiation looking out your window than you get with my lens. These filters were made for observation of the sun in outer space. They should serve your welding needs well and for a long time because of the protected mirror and the all glass construction. I just wanted to make a lens I would weld with and believe me I weld with this one myself. Check it out ! ! !
As a welder of 25 plus years experience, I understand how hard it is to find a Good Quality Welding Lens. After searching the world, I finally found a company willing to work with me. They had a good welding lens and we found a way to make it the best it could possibly be: By bringing the Cool Blue Welding Lens Back to the Welding Industry! I am just the Lucky man they have chosen to Distribute the NEW Aulektro BLUE and/or AQUA WELDING LENS! Since then, I have also developed the ALL NEW ULTRA COOL BLUE, which is a 2 Piece Glass, Protected and Mirrored, ULTRA Definition, ULTRA Blue Welding Lens... Getcha Some! Just a Click AWAY !!!
