juhzeppi Posted June 13, 2012 Report Share Posted June 13, 2012 First off, sorry if this is an inappropriate place to ask these questions, not sure where i should go. Also wanted to say amazing forum and work, much inspiration on this forum from its members. My question is based on the dust from bone carving. I am brand new to carving and wear a respirator but have been coughing like a madman lately, I realized it was because my beard did not allow a good seal ( common sense but completely went over my head). I am having some trouble and need peace of mind from you all if this simple setup is sufficient: I work now in the garage, by the door so pretty much outside. To my back is a large industrial blower to blow allot of dust outside and I use a half face respirator with no beard now(shaved it). With this setup is carving bone relatively safe? I really just need peace of mind so i can get back to carving instead of worrying all the time. I realize many use a suction system to capture dust but being that i am working outside in a ventilated area, is one of these necessary? Thanks for any help and suggestions, I will post some work shortly. j Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
