Project Information

These are the most recent sierra pens I made. Both pics are of the same pens I just didn't know which pic would show better. The 2 lighter colored pens are made out of spalted taramind and the 2 darker ones are a burl.

My question for all of you woodturners and woodworkers is what type of dust mask do you prefer?
? what ones worked for you and what ones didn't. After completing these pens I think I took in alot of dust, along with all the other projects I've been doing. Here's part of my problem: do to a limited amount of mobility with my arms I have a hard time reaching my head so all the ones you need to take a strap and tie it behind your head hasn't worked for me so I am looking for an easy slip on type or something similiar. I also don't have a dust collection system. Very limited space so if you have any suggestions along the lines of a system I'd love to hear your ideas!

I use a simple paper drywall mask with elastic headbands. I prefer the higher-grade type with an exhalation valve and metal nose strap to reduce eyeglass fogging.

Very nice pens .I use a dust begone it is a reusable dust mask but it has to be tied behind you head perhaps you could tie it before putting it on.
