All of the details on different systems were starting to run together in my head along with past experience of breathing rust with a half mask respirator. I think I would feel more comfortable with a completely sealed system for long term use.

When I restore my truck at some point and start stripping the frame, I'll have to better ventilate the garage and wait for the right time in late winter/early spring to use a scuba mask with oxygen and a hood or something to protect the lens. It takes me longer than the average person to do something like this and I want to feel at ease knowing I have the ultimate protection at a decent price.

I know guys do this all of the time with the cheapest of everything. Just get a little concerned about the sand blasting threads with guys posting 8 times and disappearing. hehe

Probably for the near future I'll use what Sam mentioned and see how comfortable I feel with it. I don't believe any blast media is completely safe but sure would make a tedious project easier. Gotta make it work because $50,000. to replace a truck is NOT acceptable.

What do use Shine, any thoughts?

i have a blasting booth and a pretty big rig. i have a nova 2000 helmet and a nylon/canvas suit. my old hood was nylon with a head set inside. they run on compressed air and pressurize the hood. no need for a mask . the nylon hood was not too expensive. been a while since i bought it. your going to find out any mask is going to make the job 10 times worse if it is warm at all. i will see if i can find the hood supplier. i think it came from my media supplier.
the one at northern is 150 and is close to the same. it is fed by a hose and belt.

I ran out of memory & had to switch 'puters. Only 100 web pages open.

That's interesting Shine. I probably seem overly concerned to some people, but it's more comforting to know you've been doing this for a while and willing to share your setup. That makes it better to visualize what I want to shoot for and what to compare products to what is working effectively for others. I appreciate it. The internet and DIY craze seems to have driven prices up on safety equipment especially, compared to the actual value of the components; disrgarding the human factor in the equation.

I'll have to find the Nova 2000 page again. It seems like the air hose connected to the rear. That would be much better than drawing compressor air from the front. Seems that would be the safest part of the setup now that I think about it. Thanks Shine! I'll re-examine this. Big Rig sounds fun.
