Face shield/respirator

Hello everyone. I need a better face shield and would like to get one with filters and some type of vent system. I was wandering what other people are using and looking for recommendations.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for the info. I got the Trend Pro. Sunday. I used it to finish a ambrosia maple bowl Mon. night. It works great.

Eugene, how does that work? I didn't take the time to look it up. Does it deliver fresh air to you? or just filter the air you breathe in? full face I'm assuming? I am not as careful as I should be when sanding and with what I am breathing. Probably should start to pay attention to this more. I do run my dust collector while sanding and it does a pretty good job of removing sanding dust. I need to get one of those handy dandy foot switches to turn it on and off though! Glad the Trend is working for you. give us a little review of it if you get the time.

respirator/face shield

I must agree with everyone else about the Trend face shield, I have one and any time I blow a lot of dust around in the shop or sand on anything, I put it on and will not remove it until I have left the area.
After reading about some of the medical problems that breathing different types of wood dust WILL cause, it sent a chill down my spine, and I WAS a pack + a day smoker on top of that at the time.
To some, it may look to be too much of a cash outlay, but think about what your life is worth?
