  • Anyone use a Dust Bee Gone?

    I've been doing OK with my conventional disposable dust mask, but I've been intrigued by the dust bee gone. If any of you have had experience with it, I'd appreciate your feedback. Thanks.

    I have one. The initial cost seemed to be a bit much, but the truth is, the DustBee Gone is washable and lasts far longer than 4 boxes of disposable masks and is more effective and comfortable. I like it a lot.

      This is by far THE Best dust mask you can buy. Don't let the cost even be a factor, your health is way more important. These work so well, I don't think you breath any dust in. They are super comfortable to wear, and don't for up your glasses. You can breath so much better wearing the mask. Can you tell how much I like this mask. Plus being able to wash it and your set for another couple of weeks. I have been using the same one for at least 3 years and wash it about twice a month. It is starting to get a little fuzzy as to where I am thinking it may be time for a new one. Those fuzzies start to tickle the face from time to time.
      Just buy one, you will be glad you did.

          I wear mine all the time in the shop. If I wear it then it is helping so i say money well spent.

            I had been using the Dust B Gone - then I got the totobobo that Steve Good recommended - I think it works much better and is considerably cheaper. You can order it from Paula Ford Paula Ann Ford - Tennessee Pastel Artist

              I have had one for about 9 years and it is time to be replaced. The straps no longer stretch and the Velcro don't stick but it did well all the time I had it. As you all know I am a bit of a fanatic about dust and I found it to be extremely comfortable and it did do the job. Let's see, 9 years of working the way it should, at about $4 a year. Yep, worth it..

              When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                I started with the Dust Be Gone and found it very good but I also now prefer the totobobo

                  After seeing "reviews" of the dust be gone on this forum, a few weeks ago I bought one at the local Woodcraft store. I was a miner for quite a few years, and my lungs aren't in the best of shape. The mask now allows me to do woodworking again!

                    Thanks, everyone, for your input. I just ordered the totobobo mask because it was so intriguing, but plan to order the Dust B Gone as well.

                    The cost of the masks is trivial when health is factored in, and if they don't cause fogging, maybe I'll start wearing my eye protection more consistently.

                      I ordered the dust be gone mask. I'll try it first. You're right Mike it will help no matter what the cost is. I've already damaged my lungs from smoking I quit 20 years ago but the damage was already done. I've been looking for a mask that wouldn't fog my glasses. Thanks Don

                        Carole, after you test out both of them post your opinions. I have been using the DBG for awhile, but if there is something better, then I would be interested. I find the DBG to be very comfortable since you form the top piece to your nose. Sometimes I forget I have it on, so comfort has to be evaluated on both. So please do a follow up with your test results.

                          Will do. I've ordered the totobobo, and it's supposed to ship today. There's an online template so you can test out the size with a paper mock-up of the mask. Certainly different from the typical dust mask. Joe has a much larger face (and nose) than I have, and it will be interesting to see if it works for him, as well.

                          I'll order the DBG as soon as I pull together the rest of my order for Klingspor, to save on shipping. When I do my testing, maybe I'll sand up some padauk to make what's going on more obvious. That's the most colorful dust I can think of!

                            Carole, the DustBeeGone website has the mask for $39 which is considerably cheaper than most other sites I've checked.

                              Jan, Klingspor has it for 34.95. I've seen it in the low 40's, so it pays to shop around. Thanks for the heads-up.

                                I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

                                What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

                                Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!
