Woodworkers respirator

,
January 14, 2008
By colj
from Seattle, Washington
"I have been signcarving for several years using traditional tools. Recently I started carving wooden spoons and other kitchen tools and have been using flexible shaft tools to augment the carving process. The only problem with the flex shaft tool is that it raised a lot of dust which caused me to develop upper respiratpry problems-runny nose, itching eyes, and coughing. I initialy tried to use simple paper masks but these quickly became coated on the inside with moisture and caused more problems than they were worth. I then bought your woodworkers respirator and solved my problems! It was easy to fit to my face for the initial use and now slips on easily. I can and do wear it for 2-3 hours at a time with complete comfort and best of all, my previous problems have all disappeared. This inexpensive tool is now a regular and most valuable tool in my workshop. It has allowed me to continue with a hobby I enjoy."

Super Respirator

from A stones throw from Dallas, Texas
"I was growing tired of using the paper respirators that get soggy and move around on my face. I decided to invest in an good reasonably priced reusable mask. This respirator is just what I needed. It is great for dust from sanding but also works for mowing and other jobs that create a high particulate discharge. Even with a beard the mask's soft rubber surface creates a great seal against my face and the adjustable strap keeps it where I put it. I also purchased a pack of filters so I could have them on hand when needed. It works for me and I hope it works for you."

Woodworker Respirator

,
July 9, 2007
By Donbashini
from Unadilla, Georgia
"At 72 yrs. old, I have been suffering with old age allergies, making it very difficult to mow my lawn and do other yard work because of dust and pollens. I came to check out your catalog for respirators. I chose to order the woodworkers respirator. The price was excellent and seemed to fit my needs. And was I ever right! The mask is very comfortable and easy to wear. Best of all, I'm not wheezing and hacking when I get my chores done. I ordered extra filters with the purchase which were very reasonably priced and are easy to replace."

the best dustmask ever

,
January 11, 2007
By bruddah
from glendale, ca
"this is the best dustmask ever, if you want to change out a filter, wear for long periods at a time, wear with safety glasses and not get any fogging.
fully adjustable (generous length) strap - even if you have to wear it over other protective gear, light-weight, simple to clean.
the only down side is if you have to wear it during hot weather. but that is always a struggle. you get a good seal even if you rock a goatee."
