Anyone recommend a decent dust mask. Have a jsp force 8 mask but not happy with it. Seems dust is getting through the front part of it was cutting out a door frame today in block wall and was fcuked with dust. Can still taste it ffs so time to invest in a better quality mask that no dust gets through

I got one of these mate, not cheap but had mine years, nothing gets through it, you can buy new filters for it aswel depending what your doing with it.

My uncle works along with me at times on the stone and doesn't use one. You want to see the dust of it when using consaw, wild! His lungs will be f**k*d in no time with thon stuff.


These are quite good for dropping ceilings. I got it from screwfix

Sometimes I do but times couldn't be f**k*d, although we all should every time we mix because that s**t shouldn't be anywhere near our lungs

I can't remember who it was that told me or if he on here , told me he had skim set on lungs a condition that can't be improved.

I'm 48 now and for yrs thought I was invincible I wore a mask only in last few yrs in everything dusty I do .
I couldn't stop coughing about 4yrs ago to point of unable to work mate telling me to go home and see a doc.
He was quite straight with me he said you have a choice give up your work or wear a mask you will have probs in later life from damage already done but if you don't remember to protect your lungs from now on your working days are finished regardless.
I took note .

Tbh I have made the effort since I was told but sometimes don't and end up reverting to my traditional pulling tshirt over nose when pouring and mixing , mixing out side when I can as well.

Never wore a dust mask. Smoked a lot. Drank a lot. Maybe it's in my genes. Minimise your risks boys. Wear a mask.

Is ok for dropping ceilings and other dusty work but not so good with dust from consaw. Bought one from screwfix and was chuffed when using it in attic and drilling but was disapointed with it with consaw dust :(
