I use the same dust mask that you do. But I have to have 3 0r more going at the same time.
They seem to get wet on the inside of my breath and don't work well . So ill put the thing on the truck dash to dry out and use #2 then #3 then later back to the first one
And in the winter they freeze up  :D :D
Does this happen to you?
not the freeze up part :D :D :D

I am really baffled because the reason that I wear that particular dust mask with the vent is because it does not get wet from condensation.  I do exhale through my mouth and direct the air flow toward the vent.

Now if it is getting wet from sweat, that may be a different situation.   ???

Try a respirator.  I find them much more comfortable and they do a better job.  As a bonus there also cheaper in the long run.

I use the trend airshield which is nice because it blows the air over your face and is cooler and doesn't fog.  Really nice when running the planer.

So I thought the trend was a bit pricey (just under $300) and didn't buy it at first.  Then in the course of a week I got a nasty sinus infection from dust and a splinter that shot past my safety glasses and got me in the eye.  As I reviewed the $600 in co-pays from the ER visit and follow up my wife asked me to review my logic on the trend being a bit pricey!

I use one made by North, it has replaceable filters that can be for dust or organic vapor.

This morning it was 45  not that cold and the mask was all wet in an 1/2 hr.
I think al try the respirator kind.
I did call Wood Mizer to see if they have a 70 mill and remote that will work on my 24' exertion. They have a new one that only has one wire from the head to the remote instead of the track with all the wires in it. Then the dust won't be a problem :D :D :D :D
That's why I bought the walk and ride 40 to get the 24'er.
But will see


 

  

  

 

no track and one wire the size of a pencil ;D
In the #2 pic you can see the wire on the floor
then goes to a overhead

This is my 3M respirator. 



It has fairly cheap pre-filters to protect the more expensive main filter.  The pre-filter is in my hand. 



I replace the pre-filters maybe once a month depending on what I do and how much.  The main filter is about two years old and still good.  The mask seals good and no leaks.  My glasses don't fog.  Sometimes sweat at the seal bothers me after a few hours but I can wipe my face dry and continue.

I bought it for spray painting as one is a must for the stuff I spray.  I found I like it when sanding, especially cedar so it gets a lot of shop use.  I also use it for grinding steel on the belt grinder...I'm a wannabe knife maker.  One day just as an experiment I tried it while sawing.  I decided I like it a lot better than the white masks.  I donít always wear it depending on the wind and what Iím cutting.

One of the selling points when I bought the TK-2000 was the remote console to keep me out of the dust.  It helps but there still is a lot of flying dust.  If I had the money, I could go for a LT-70 with their remote console as one can really get away from the dust.  I think you would look quite good in a new ORANGE LT-70 Peter.

This is the one that I use:  LINK  I wore the same mask all day today with no moisture buildup problem and it was a hot 96į.  It was the same mask that I wore yesterday.

As I said previously, I am baffled as to why Peter is having moisture problems.  The valve lets the moist air out.

I use the very same one as Magicman.  The only time I have trouble with it being too moist is in the winter (i.e. when the temp is below freezing).

I guess I had better start using a mask of some sort.  So far I have not felt like I have needed one though.

They don't let the sweat out that is running down my face behind the mask.
People do sweat differently, some more than others, and some a LOT more than others. ;)

The more I think about the respirator kind . If cold out I think It would be wet inside too. I'm going to the tunbrige fair sat and I think Jeremy from NY Wood Mizer will be there. He's a smart guy and I bet he knows how to put the 70 together with a 24' ex
Any one want to buy a use 40 supper. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D ;D
I wonder if I could redo the 40 with the new remote. Now I'm thinking to much. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D ;D
