Rocker has quite the selection of dust masks, some are washable. http://www.rockler.com/search/go?w=dust%20mask%20respirator I often wonder if 50 years from now all people will wear a dust mask doing their daily tasks.
Hey 4x4 you are a combination of Jimmy Durante and Jay Leno?this thread has given me food for thought.I only get the sawdust near me when the wind is swirling and in the wrong direction.I saw mostly with the rubber chute up but put it down when the wind is wrong.
Yep, didn't think much about it when I started a few years ago, but after coming home after day of sawing and coughing up a storm finally started wearing a mask. Hemlock, black locust, black walnut, oak, (and others) like Ianab said durable wood comes from strong natural chemicals, all stuff I've been sawing over the past few years. I've tried the 3M masks and don't work for me. My dad got me a "dust bee gone" washable reusable mask (http://dustbeegone.com/dustmask.html) and I can wear it no problems so far. Take it home and wash it in the sink and it's like new. No more agitation in the lungs when I get home either. Gotta take care of yourself.
Thanks for the lead on this. Me and the saleslady are playing phone tag but I'll be getting a couple of them. One for me and one for my worker, with a side of fries.
