I'm wearing a mask rated for h2s gas and a hard hat with those high quality Scott ear muffs attached and a full flip down shield which is also integrated into the hard hat . The masks cartridges do Unfortunatly hit the sheild on occasion and inadvertently open it . I do have a fat head however , so this may just be a problem for me .
When I say high quality ear muffs , there's differant versions , and I like the ones that really keep the noise down .
I also have a regular dust mask with those replaceable paper elements ,and seems as though every time I use it cutting MDF that I cough for days later , but using the h2s mask works incredibly well . The mask also has paper pre filters before the charcoal cartridge , so I think it takes out anything from a wood particle to things as small as a bizzilimeter.
I'm liking your respirator idea the best though, and it has been discussed before . Hopefully the member that uses one sees this thread
I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
