  6. I would get a Trend Airshield Pro they are like £250 and are a full helmet with a battery fan in them ,they are real good I would be lost without mine and customer services from Trend are very good.
  7. There is a fine line between Spalted and Rotten ,but as someone said not much public interest in Spalted Beech at the mo 8/10yrs ago it was in demand not so much now ,I think its cool a booked matched pair of boards make stunning tables and with the Lacqures and Resins around then keeping a table top nice is easy done ,I have a fair bit of 7/8yrs air dry Spalted Beech if anyone wants any also have Spalted Apple ,and Holly

  10. Andy its the very fine dust you cant see that is the worst ,the big sawmill that was just up the road from me closed as the matey got real bad COPD from the milling sawdust better to be safe than sorry ,and having lived with quite Asthma all my life its no fun ,even the sawdust from sweeping up after a milling afternoon can do you in Yew is poisonous lost count of the times in A and E with sawdust and bits in my eyes when chainsaw carving so Full Face Helmut gets my vote every time
  11. I have a Trend Airshield Pro for Milling ,sanding etc they are expensive but totally worth every penny and the after sales from Trend is totally ace ,no fumes ,dust or bits in the eyes whats not to like .
