Cheap place to grab a full face respirator?

I'd like to grab one of those for my next paint project, and around here, they want an arm and a leg.. I was going to take a little jaunt down to buffalo and grab one, but I can't seem to find any place that sells them (on websites, I mean, but in stores locally). I figured Tractor Supply might have them, but nope, nor does walmart it seems (Although I wouldn't expect them to).

I'd like to avoid mail order. What are my american store options?

Home Depot and Lowes have some, but for a full face mask with N95 cartridges will set you back a pretty fair amount of Loonies. A half mask will be probably half that amount but wont give you good protection for iso-cyanates in some paints.

Thanks for the response.. I can't seem to find any 3m ones on their pages but let me double check.

I have some half masks, but for this job I'd like to try a full face mask (With organic vapour cartridges) so I don't have to bother with goggles and a hat, etc..

Checked Home Depot.. they has that MSsomething brand.. Lowes doesn't seem to carry any?

N95 filters are just particulate filters, right? Why would those cost alot?

What other big box/cheap stores am I forgetting about? Walmart has none.. Target seems to have none.. I'm out of ideas!

Go to a store that sells auto paint. Check out what they have, there is a reason that what they sell costs more.. it will protect you! Most of the ones that you buy elsewhere are made for dust etc. Spend the money now rather than go through HELL afterwards.

It's all the same, as long as it fits your face, and can fit an organic cartridge.

Need to spray epoxy, couple coats of high build, then color and clear.. Then I'll be glad if I never do it again.

Why be cheap when you're talking about your health/safety? Not trying to step on your toes, just trying to show that being cheap is not always the best option.

sigh...... People really like jumping on you on this board.

I mean a brand name decent one, just a place to grab one for a low price.. They seem to range in price (For the same thing) by a hundred bucks or so at different vendors! I was hoping US walmart or something sold them, but it's looking grim.

To those of you who wear half-masks.. what do you do about your eyes? Any air tight goggles? I imagine they wouldn't make a good seal against your nose anyways with a halfmask on.

fffffff

most goggles are not air tight they have vents on sides other wise they would fog up !!! we have googles at wrk for splash preventin and to protect from dust but they have vents. you can wear them with 1/2 face but your right they do not seal very well by the nose area really just keep stuff from flying up and hitting your eyes.unfortuantly inexpensive and fullface do not go together our safety manager says just put the word safety equipment in the same sentence and see the$$$$$$$ add up good luck

Probably had you said 'less expensive' that fine hair wouldn't be being split

So that begs the question, what DO you full time painters (who don't use a respirator) use to protect your lungs and eyes? Especially to those who wear a half-mask.

I picked mine up at ICI paints, www.dulux.ca they had the 3m 7500 half masks on for $40.

Also check carquest with the paint shops, they carry a few different kinds as well.
