Breathing apprentices are hard to find. Thinking apprentices even more so. Those that will show up to work are exceedingly rare these days. And those that are literate and can spell? Practically nonexistent. Evidently.
Just keep the same amount of stuff on the right
as there is on the left. Seeing straight ahead is highly overrated....

Wouldn't a commonly available painter's mask apparatus with replaceable screw-on carbon canister cartridges work? Like the ones used when painting catalyzed paint?

they would, just seeing if anyone had lesser expensive units they were using.  I looked on ebay and there are units on there for i guess a decent price. ill just pop for one and see how it works.

I don't like to cheap out" on safety gear. You have only one set of lungs, and - unlike spark plugs - you can't change them out. Also,the membranes in your eyeballs can also absorb toxic fumes - protect them too. Good luck.

3m makes a really nice full face mask, and get the organic vapor filters for it. yes its alittle pricey, but the mask should last years, and the filters should also.

thank you, looks like it might work with glasses too after reading reviews.
