New reusable face mask for polishing job

I saw a few of discussions relates to the use of dust mask. Have you guys heard of TOTOBOBO mask? It is a new type of reusable mask. It's transparent so you can check the seal visually. Lightweight and doesn't interfere goggles or glasses. Anti-virus and can be trim to fit almost everybody. The filter contains electro-static charges and is able to capture very fine particles (94% efficiency for 0.3 u). Most importantly, almost everyone tried it said it's very comfortable to wear.

Some user testimonials (go to the bottom of page):

No, and I didn't see the discussions about dusk masks, either. It seems to me that you're an untalented spammer, nothing more. As such, the product you are exploiting a discussion group to advertise, is suspect at best.

Whoever is responsible for your internet marketing strategy needs to be fired.

post was from 1999, but it's still relevant today. I hope Bill is getting better now. "I hope this isn't a naive question, but... do any/all of you wear a dust mask or other breathing apparatus while grinding/filing/machining/ sanding metal? [Warning - icky biological reference coming up!] The reason I ask is because sometime over the last month or so I've started coughing up a little blood after I do something strenuous; at first I thought it was only when I had been grinding or casting, but now it seems like if I go out and carry a bunch of heavy stuff around or push the lawn mower around for a couple hours, I get the same thing. About the same time I noticed it, I had started taking "Nasonex" nasal-spray anti-allergy medicine, which apparently contains steroids of some type. I took it all last spring/fall with no problem, though, so I suspect that's not it. I've never really seen anything in the metalworking books I've read that indicates you should wear a dust mask, and they said nothing about it in the lathe and milling machine classes I took at the local community college. I mentioned it to my dentist and he sort of freaked out and went into this big lecture about how they make them wear masks and use a suction device when they're grinding gold for teeth, etc. I'm planning on visiting my doctor as soon as I can get an appointment, but I was wondering what, if anything, everyone else does in terms of protection from metal dust... -Bill Richman ( snipped-for-privacy@inetnebr.com)

Absolutely.

And for wood and fiberglass too (ESPecially fg!)

Otherwise... [Warning - icky biological reference coming up!]

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Don't be so hard on him. He offered free samples on rec.crafts.woodturning, and I got one. His responses to user feedback, including criticism, have been frank and helpful. Consequently, I have ordered a supply of refill filters from him.

As far as firing his advertising manager is concerned, I don't think so. I suspect that he is the owner/operator/manager rolled into one.

I am not affiliated with him except as a sample tester and purchaser. I suggest you search rec.crafts.woodturning and see what others have said about this mask as well.

BTW, just so you'll know, the mask is comfortable, seals well to the face, and offers very little back pressure. I can't attest to the effectiveness of filtration, except to say that the filters picked up the color of the wood I was sanding very quickly.

Thanks Leo, for your support and directly feedback. We've learn and improved by listening to the feedbacks of our early test users, including yours.

Hi Dave, we understand the disadvantage of being a new and unknown brand. TOTOBOBO has no track record and your skepticism is logical. I hope you will give it a try however.

It would seem a device using fans to push air up a flex hose from a source outside the dust zone would be the winning ticket. I get claustrophobic breathing through a dust mask.

I guessed that as well.

Point was and is, jumping in with an ad, in a group he's never participated in and then comes to exploit for free advertising, is spamming, plain and simple. Targeted spam to be sure, but that doesn't make it any less of someone taking from, and not giving to, the group.

Not interested. The only thing you got right is that you didn't pretend to have "Found this new site, everyone should go check it out".
