« Part 5: Sanding Station: Ideation Part 6 of Air Quality series Part 7: Box Fan Air Cleaner »

Purchased a new Respirator [3M 7500] based upon Marc S’s example. Been looking for a Respirator that wouldn’t fog up my glasses. The past few I’ve bought either are too hard to breath through or fog up my glasses. Put the 7500 this morning after Amazon delivered. Awesome fit and no fog. This in addition to all the other shop air quality project I’ve been doing should make the environment healthier for me to work in.

-Thanks Marc

I have the 3M 7500 series as well. It’s amazing how comfortable it is.

#Notw—-not a question I can answer yet. I think Marc Spagnuolo or CharlesA might be able to give you a better answer as I’ve just recently purchased mine based upon Marc’s advocacy of the product. All I can tell you right now is the fit and no fog to my glasses is awesome

People get me and Marc Spagnuolo mixed up all the time . . .

anyway, I change them when I see a build-up on the outside of the pink filters. I’m not a daily user of the mask, so I’m not too concerned with throwing them out early.
