I couldn’t get my face shield to stay down , as my dust masks filter cartridges obstructed it just enough to cause it to flip up , so I bought another 3M mask that has hoses that go behind your back where the same cartridges are relocated .
Hi,

What is the name, the manufacturer, and model number of the unit that you state provides all three features I'm seeking -- face shield, hearing, and lungs protection?

Industrial solution? 3M or Scott air helmet with clip-on ear defenders

Cheaper solution? Made-to-fit insert ear plugs - like the ones clay shooters and musicians use but designed for industry (see an audiologist) plus a cheaper solution such as the Trend Air Ace helmet/vizor

I wear the TR Industrial TR88011 Safety Helmet when I work on construction site and they seem to work pretty well. Maybe it will help you!

Hi Walter, welcome to the Forum. Very good idea to be concerned about inhaling sawdust. Most of the entries on this old thread still apply. The EPA has tested home shops and found most were completely unsafe with regard to causing lung problems. I still use that Rockler mask on page one. Really does the job for me.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

You should use safety glasses and mask to protect all.

I am using the 3M brand (glasses, earplugs, gas masks) to protect myself at work. They are quite well rated

When I am at my workshop, I am fully armed - apron, safety glasses, N95 mask, and ear muffs. My husband likes ear plugs, he thinks they are better than ear muffs. This site https://www.seton.co.uk/ear-muffs-vs-ear-plugs compare pros and cons of both.
