Default Dealing with dust

My table has pretty good dust collection, but I was wondering if anyone has had good luck with a particular style of dust mask or respirator. The biggest problem I have is on humid days dust masks make my glasses fog up.

Any advice would be apreciated.

Try cleaning your glasses with an anti-fog cloth specificaly made for eye glasses.
Available at vision centers.

Or you can use the new Vacume system from Oak-Park.com, it will remove all the dust from the router table.

I use the Trend Airshield since I do a lot of wood turning also. It seals around your whole face and blows filtered air down across your face. This air movement eliminates fogging of the glasses.

In your opinion, does it work well enough to justify the expense? Also, did you have to get extra battery packs, or does the one included pack work well enough?

Thanks in advance,

Doug

If you plan to use it for more than 4 hours a day, you will need the extra battery pack. I am often in my shop for more than 4 hours but I don't need the airshield on the entire time. I tried the Dust-B-Gone mask among others but I didn't like breathing into it, I just find it uncomfortable. I personally think the airshield is worth the expense, since I do a lot of turning, because there is no such thing as adequate dust collection on a lathe.

I had same problem then hooked router table to collector and took box fan with duct taped furnace filter on it and blows from router table away from me so even if some gets by filter it goes away from me.
