Am I the only one dumb enough to use cheap Home Depot dust masks for handling coal? My nose winds up full of black dust. Who knows where it goes besides my nose -- will I be the first case in Maine of black lung disease? Recently I saw my neighbor, who makes wooden furniture, with a mask like the one pictured. I bought a box from an internet site, a little more than $1 per mask, and they are vastly better than the cheapies. They fit better, seal much better, and filter much better. The ones I got are 3M model 1860. They are rated N95, which I don't understand completely, but it is a measure of how well they filter. I highly recommend them.
