      PAPR is beyond some peoples budgets, this can be picked up most anywhere

      This is what I used in a confined room using O/A to cut out a galvanized tank. I ruined the filters but didn't get any gunk in my nose or lungs. I also took frequent breaks to get fresh air and drank some milk afterwards.

      3M™ Half Facepiece Respirator Assembly 6291/07002(AAD), Medium, with 3M™ Particulate Filters 2091/07000(AAD), P100 24/cs

      The mask kit runs between $30.00 and $50.00 but the P100 Cartridges can be found for less than $10.00 for replacement. They do fit under most welding hoods.
