I have been a DIYer my whole, fairly long, life. Like many, I have not been aware of all the risks, and have recently developed airway complaints which have not been satisfactorily diagnosed by specialists (??).
I don't want to put anyone off, but the following article is worth a read to ensure that we don't become too lax about taking precautions as well as buying and using protective gear. We can diy with minimal risk to our health....
Thanks for drawing attention to that mask @EricL . They seem like they'd be a wise investment for me to buy and use.
I wonder if other members of this forum also have items of safety gear that they can recommend from their experience with it?
(I am also still looking for the ultimate safety Off switch for my table saw. My hands and feet are busy handling things, so I may have to make my own bump-bar arrangement for the table. )
