sailingdog You can get them at most home improvement stores. I think I got mine at Home Despot... or Lowe's. You can also get them from JamesTown Distributors. They also make a hell of a good start on a decent Halloween costume. JTD is a bit cheaper than Home Despot currently, but I got mine on sale for abit less than either.

sailhog Sailingdog,
Where'd you pick up that full-face mask/respirator?

sailhog Lust is such a difficult desire to tame.

That reminds me . . . need to call my supplier for a refill before I run out again.

sailhog . . . that was just your inner desires taking over.

sailhog I think I'll skip the mask and respirator so that I can blame my behavior on the inhalation of 20 coats of ablative paint. It might get me off the hook for some of the inappropriately lude comments I made about TB's dog...

I got tired of having the goggles fog up over and over again...and having grit get in through the tiny vent holes in the goggles. They even make disposable shields, that go over the visor part of the mask, so that if you get paint or epoxy on the eye protection section, you don't have to pitch the mask—just peel the shield off and put a new one one.

Many years prior to that though, I only used standard nose/mouth paper filters. Who knows what nasties became imbedded in my lungs and chemicals ingested into my blood system? It might explain my sometimes erratic behavoir.

I wear a suit and cheap mask most of the time for sanding and just the suit for painting - a real 'respirator' type mask should be worn for sanding.... one of these days all my lack of precautions will catch up to me In our area most require a vacuum and some require a protective drop cloth.

sailingdog Sailhog-

As someone who has been doing a fair amount of work on the bottom of his boat, one thing I highly recommend that you get is a full-face dustmask/respirator, like this one pictured below. It doesn't fog up as much as goggles and a half-face mask, and it keeps the grit and gunk out of your eyes much better.

You probably won't need to have a bunny suit, unless you're allergic to the bottom paint, since it generally isn't as bad as fiberglass is. The bunny suits are hot and sticky. Earplugs are highly advised as well... keeps the crap out of your ears and has the benefit of protecting your hearing.

RAGTIMEDON Another thing to factor in to the cost equation--- Ben Franklin said "A penny saved is a penny earned" but that was so long ago that they had virtually no taxes. Saving that thousand bucks is as good as earning 1600 in today's economy!
