Respirators

>Okay, so I've searched the archives, looked around and am still confused as to what to get. There's full mask battery powered respirators that people love and hate. There's the 3m full masks that use cartridges and some people appear to prefer, and then theres the 1/2 mask ones that I'm guessing you wear under your face mask you have. So instead of asking what you prefer, brand etc... I'd like to know why you prefer the different systems. Powered, Non-Powered, 1/2 mask or something I've yet to read about?

And I guess the other question is, you always hear people mention to wear them but do you wear them while your turning big stuff, little stuff, only when turning Dry wood, or just when sanding/finishing?

Thanks
