It's gonna fog like a mofo.
Look, you're dealing with dust, not mist. BIG difference in particle size. Get the right filter and don't worry about supplied air. Try this, for half the price:



3M6900 Full Face Respirator Large [3M6900] - $134.95 : The Mitt & Robe Company, Head to Toe Safety
Spend the savings on a half dozen tyvek bunny suits. I worry more about skin absorption of nasties than I do breathing them in. I have a truly attractive peeling chemical burn on my waist from leaning against a rag soaked with paint thinner while caulking the rubrail of my boat. Paint thinnner! Who knew? Don't ask how it happened.

It didn't hurt the boat did it ?

I said, "Don't ask," didn't I?

No, the rag was tied to a rung of the ladder, specifically to keep it away from the finish on the boat

Don't feel too bad. I burned my butt (literally) while painting with a thinner rag in my back pocket. Then I sat in my car and hardened the leather seat with the thinner on my jeans.

Why would you spend the money on something like that when the 3M 6000 full-face respirators, like the one BLJones pointed out, are half the price or less and far more versatile IMHO.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
