types of face protection

What kind of safety gear do you use when working with a lathe? Goggles may stay tight against your face and keep dust out your eyes, but they can easily fog up. Using a face mask in addition to goggles keeps the wood shavings away from the mouth and eyes, but a face mask can also get very warm when you breathe. A face shield covers the face, but not the entire head and also fogs up when you breathe.
This lighted facemask encloses your entire face and seals around it to keep dust completely away. The mask is ventilated and has a fan and filter system that keeps you cool. The facemask also features a rechargeable battery.
