Best affordable mask I have found for woodworking
Posted December 27, 2013
I've had this mask for about 18 months now and really like it. I have tried many mask before and none were satisfactory. I just wish the plastic strap that goes behind your head was made more robust. After a couple months of use is developed a crack and broke. That is why I'm giving it only 3 stars.

I almost did not purchase this mask based on a couple of reviewers comments regarding problems with wearing glasses and using the mask. I have had no problems wearing my glasses or fogging issues that I have had with traditional dust masks. I work quite a bit with cedar and cypress both in planing and sawing operations. This mask really works!

Love this thing, had it 2 years. Positive air pressure, constant flow of filtered air keeps dust out, period. The air also flows out and keeps my glasses from fogging-a bonus. Very comfortable to wear while working and it doesn't interfere with my glasses. Keep rechargeable batteries on hand so it's always ready to go. Best solution to insidious MDF dust. I'm a throat cancer survivor so I take the carcinogen warnings seriously. You can use this mask or cough up sawdust for days after making multiple cuts. I have good dust collection system, but there is no way to stop all dust. Particularly important in a small shop. Get it, you'll love it too.

Wow! I'm amazed at just how good this product is. A friend recommended it and because I was tired of the discomfort of wearing paper masks I thought I'd give it a try. I have asthma and finish sanding has always caused asthmatic issues. I'm very pleased with the filtering and the supply of fresh, cool air regarless of how close I get to the work. I wear eyeglasses but didn't experience any interference from the mask. My lenses are smaller and rectangular shaped, so that may be why I didn't experience any interference problems. I don't have any negative comments for this product (other than it went on sale about a week after my purchase). I wish I had bought one a long time ago.
If your lung health is important...

If your lung health is important to you or your family, this set-up is one of the BEST you will ever find for the money, especially if you have inhalation problems already. The powered fan helps take all that effort of bringing in the air - away, and provides you nice - clean air to breathe. I've had mine for several years now and is still working GREAT!!!
