Dust Bee Gone Mask initial review

Protecting myself from wood dust is more important to me now than at any point in my woodworking life. I spend many nights a week in my small workshop and am around a lot of dust. I have a job this weekend that I always dread. I have to empty the bag on my dust collector. This always turns into a dust tornado.

One of the things I dread is wearing my current dust mask. It is uncomfortable and makes my glasses fog up almost instantly. I always tear it off in the middle of the job and just suffer through the dust. That is a bad idea.

A reader in Australia turned me on to the "Dust bee Gone" mask a while back. She said she loved the mask and recommended I give one a try. Knowing about the dreaded job ahead this weekend I forked over the $43 hoping it would work as advertised.

It guarantees that it will not fog your glasses and is effective down to 3 micron particle size. It also claims to be comfortable.
The mask comes in three sizes so you can find a good fit. It has a double strap design that is fully adjustable and a mold-able wire nose piece. Fit is obviously an important consideration to get a good seal from the dust. After adjusting my Dust Bee Gone mask it fits great and is by far the most comfortable mask I have used.

I have only worn the mask for a short time but I am thrilled to report it does not fog my glasses at all. I am feeling comfortable that I can wear this dust mask without the need to rip it off in the middle of a job. A dust mask is only useful if you will wear it so this test is looking good so far.
The mask seems expensive at first glance but it is washable and is said to have a life expectancy of 3 to 5 years under normal use. If I am able to use the mask comfortably then it is worth every penny.

My initial opinion of the Dust Bee Gone mask is very high. After I do my weekend shop cleaning I will come back with a follow up and let you know how it goes.

It is not to be used for protection from paint fumes, pesticides, bio-hazards, sprays or mists. It is recommended for jobs like woodworking, weed wacking, house cleaning and general nuisance jobs.

I purchased my mask from Woodcraft for $43.99 but you can visit the Dust Bee Gone website and purchase it on sale currently for $39.99.

Interesting scroll saw portrait technique by Dave Danchuk

This video shows a how artist Dave Danchuk uses the scroll saw as a creative tool for his art. The portraits are very colorful and fun. I love the way he breaks away from the stereotypical scroll saw fret work and pushes the tools creativity. There is nothing wrong with traditional fretwork but for an art to grow and thrive you need fresh blood and techniques. Dave achieves that and more.

I extended the contest one more day because of the email problems from yesterday. I'll cut the entries around 9pm tonight, eastern time (4/1/2010). Get you final entries in and good luck. To enter find the "Contest Entry" button on the blog.

Because so many people use gmail and other online email services now the "Contest Entry" button has to be changed. This month I will start a new contest and the button will now load a web form that will be accessible to everyone regardless of the email client they use. If you have been unable to enter before this should fix the problem. Thanks.
