If you use hardener you need supplied air. If you did not use hardener all you have to have is a charcoal filtered mask. If you are truly allergic to the stuff you need supplied air for everything. If you get sinus infections when not painting the fumes may cause it to happen more often, and you probably should not be around paint at all. Qualification is I'm no doctor, you need to ask one. The fumes do affect me, I avoid that by using explosion proof exhaust fans in my building along with supplied air for hardeners. If you paint outside you will still get the fumes.

What a painter friend explained to me what's important is the air movement in your shop or paint booth. He says the paint booth at work he uses is removing the mist at a high rate constantly. In a your do it yourself shop with just say a 16" fan in the wall venting the fumes you maybe alright for a little job like a door or something. But a bigger job like a big piece of equipment or whole vehicle the spray area over loads and a charcoal mask can't filter it out well enough when the spray mist is so dense in the air. The air supplied systems are not that much more $$ then high end full face charcoal mask set up now a days.

Chase -- I misinterpreted your last statement. I interpreted your comment on supplied air vs charcoal filters as supplied air not being much better than a full face charcoal filter. As Showcrop said, you must have meant supplied air did not cost that much more than full face masks -- I haven't priced any of full face masks lately. My exhaust fans are pretty good at controlling the mist, but not nearly good enough to allow charcoal filters to be used. If you have already read my initial response, I apologise.

No problem. You got it right. Those Hobbyair systems are pretty reasonable now like $400 which is not a lot for piece of mind.

Out of the blue last Nov. I had some wierd health issue's that I dealt with with all winter (feel good now) that was some odd ball rare thing with my ammune system and lungs and what not. All the blasted tests and trips to the doc trying to figure out what the heck is wrong makes a guy be more careful. They don't think it was something like paint fumes or nasty molds etc. but one always thinks it has to be something... as I've never had wierd issues like that in my life.

How do you guys edit your posts? I can't find the edit option.

I have a Hobby Air, the first time I used it about 11 years ago, I set it in the window. The wind was from the wrong direction, the fumes headed for the window so I got a direct shot. I got over it, and now it always sits outside. This was before I had the exhaust fans. As to editing, if you are using the classic version you can't edit in that version. But, there is what is called the "modern view" at the top of the page, you can switch to it and use the edit function (most of the time). Sometimes it isn't there. You can use the classic view that I prefer or the modern view, which I use only to correct my mistakes.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

CNKS, I read it that Chas_99 was agreeing that supplied air is much better and not much more money than high end charcoal.

Showcrop, upon reading it again you are probably right, so I deleted it and reworded it. Thanks.
