    I do pretty good about wearing a mask, but I just use those paper disposable masks when I cut and grind, then I have a good respirator that fits under my hold for when I tig stainless or stick weld nasty stuff, like something that has been galvanized.

    I don't think the paper disposable masks I use are sufficient though. I just have a huge box of them that, for some reason, I feel the need to blow through before I get something better.

    Prime example of why you SHOULD be wearing these things in our business. I did the same thing a few years back. The filter I dissected looked very similar to yours. Those filters catch a lot of stuff that has no business in your lungs.

    Oh it's not just welding/metal prep. I use a respirator for any outdoor activity such as cutting the grass/weeds, blowing the leaves, axe'ing bbq firewood, chainsaw'ing bbq firewood, miter sawing bbq firewood, etc, etc. I'd say half of that is just dirt and wood dust.
