    There is no place that I can find on the RZ website that shows a recognized industrial safety compliance rating or standard that they comply with. Without one you don't know if they are really safe to use. I don't trust anything a maker says about what a mask will do without certification by a proper governing body so they will not be part of my shop until they are. Might as well do like the movies do where the hero wets a scarf and ties it on their face and runs into a burning building to save a kitten. Looks good on the screen but do it yourself and your dead. In the case of masks it just a lot slower.

    Did you feel out of place, a young whippersnapper like you in a crowed of grey beaded old codgers?


    What do you mean " he then finished it with a marble." ?

    Thanks Pete, you just save me $60.00
    I searched google but couldn't find anything from people using them part from the manufacturer and dealers selling them.

    When I first come to Tennant I tried to join the auxiliary fire brigade, I was knocked back unless I had a haircut and shaved.
    Now my nephew in South Aust is in the country fire service, his beard is bigger than mine but I have more hair than him.

    Thev best decision for me was and still is I am a life member of my Wood Guild the value of membership is incalculable , hope you have great experiences. I really feel for migrants who have to also learn here in Australia the technical languages associated with their daily work and hobbies etc,also to break the hold their children assume over them as children learn faster than adults.

    An air fed helmet / faceshield should work fine with a beard. Axminster do a couple I believe. The Trend used to be popular but is quite heavy, I believe the Axminster one with a bump cap is lighter but I have never tried it as I have a Trend. The best of all is probably the 3M version where the filters are on ones belt but it costs an arm and a leg and is probably out of reach for most of us.

    I only use those these days

    Looks like I will be looking for a book entitled 1001 excuses for not using a wood lathe when invited to.

    I spent the day wondering how you could finish with a marble.
