I am an avid fan of wood-working, but only recently started to delve into wood turning. Since turning generates a lot of chips and dust, I need to find a source to buy a full-face mask and fresh-air pump. My adult onset asthma and dust sensitivity is quite a problem when sanding and sawing. I have done ?FAIRLY WELL? in the past with my dust evacuation efforts and with wearing masks when creating much dust. I have gone online to ebay in an attempt to locate a fresh-air supplied pump and full-face mask. Anybody out there that can help direct me to same …or suggestions to solve this BIG PROBLEM. What are the average wood-turners doing to protct their lungs?? At $40 bucks a wack for albuteral nebulizers I really can’t afford to keep eating the dust that makes mw wheeze all night. I will appreciate any FORUM help. RJM
