Where can i get a slanty kromer?im working with pipe welders and they all wear slanty brimmed kromers over one ear..my kromer points backwards at middle of my neck and they wont tell me where to get a kromer that just covers one ear.

Im sure someone will sell you one. They are at least double the price of a back pointing one.

Hey big steroid you need to get with the times. I have a 3 peak kromer. Left/right ear and the 3rd straight down the neck. Saves all that messing around switching. Just looks a bit odd walking around with the neck peak forward.

couldn't you buy a normal straight kromer--and just slant your head --you could slant to the left one day and then to the right the next day--that would make others think that you had more than one kromer

or you could always just cut both your ears off completely,this would solve the problem. and I'm sure this would certainly confuse the smart alec pipe welders

B.S.
the ones off here are good. The Lapco ones are the biz.

Or try "fleabay" - there's a few "Watson reversible" type for sale on there, but made by welder's wives!!

Or try a hood, - keeps all of the grinding dust out of your neckline and keeps the arc burn at bay too.
