Tonight's Chat: Personal Dust Protection Systems

Steve Russell
>Hello to the group,

Please join us tonight for our weekly Turning Chat. This week our topic will be:

Personal (User Wearable) Dust Protection Systems: What personal dust protection systems work best in a woodturning environment? When you look at the catalogs your head just starts to spin… Full face, Half Mask, Helmet, Self Contained, Split Systems, Passive, Active, the list goes on an on. What really works and what does not?

Which systems are comfortable to wear for long periods of time? What about battery life on powered units? Which systems make your head feel like it's a bowling ball on a broomstick and which ones feel so light that you forget you're wearing them? What about replacement parts… Which systems are cost effective to operate? Join us as we discuss personal dust protection systems in the woodturners studio.

We will start the chat with a 15 minute review of 2 selected works by our WC friends. If you are interested in having your work reviewed at the turning chat, remember to email Ron Sardo: (ron@simplyturning.com) 1 or 2 (max.) photos of some of your recent work (completed or unfinished, in process etc.) for our "Show and Tell" session. Please indicate whether you are submitting the photos as "Completed Work" for a critique, or as an "Assistance Needed" submission that you would like some type of help, or assistance with.

Turning Chat room opens at 9:00pm EDT (For meet and greet)
Show-N-Tell starts at 9:30pm EDT
Main Topic starts at 9:45pm EDT
Post Chat Wrap-Up starts at 10:30pm EDT (For extended discussions if desired)
