I worked at a shop where I didn't NEED a mask, but had to take the fitment test every year! LOL. I failed every year for 8 years. The guy would ask me every time if
I would shave. LOL.

Grinding, with the inability to seal air tight and no real need for chemical protection that leaves dust.
In the process of bobbing the bed on a truck I've had enough dust and the fancy dust masks just really don't work.
I looked a while back and didn't really find anything but I was looking at the filters built into welding lids but the $$$$!!

I think these things might be the right thing, but maybe not the right cost.

Here is a version from 3M:


It looks like you can get the 3M helmet by itself for around $200 but I don't know if you can use it as a passive setup or if the supply air system is required. I imagine if you dig around you could find an affordable version.

Here's the 3M catalog
http://solutions.3m.com/3MContentRet...bute=ImageFile

Best features are (1) pretending you're a driving a trophy truck through Baja and (2) pretending you are floating in space conducting critical repairs to your spacecraft.

Entropy-

I have a speedglas hood with a PAPR. It works good. I use it when welding on galvanizing, or when I have to stand in one place and weld a lot.


Let me know if you want more info.

I got mine used off e-bay.

Took it apart, washed it in 10 percent bleach and water. Twice.

Installed new filters, new lens covers. Good to go.

I am thinking I paid 300-350 for it.

Came with bag, 2 batteries, new lens covers, back pack, belt pack, a air flow tester, and charger.

I see them all the time set up like this.

I did have to buy the inner face shield lens.


What I like is being able to grind without safety glasses fogging up!!!

Its totally silly and cheap looking, but the main reason the dude in the video (he specializes in making ginormous swords and weapons) uses this style is because he has a beard and can never get a normal respirator on his face.

The company that makes the one he custom modifies is in the description of the video but I'll post it here too...

Its called a Resp-O-Rator and their website is here... http://www.duckworksbbs.com/tools/resp/

Here is their cheesy promo vid...

Kind of expensive but might work for what you want.
