      How long had you been welding with that to collect that much crud?

        Looks like he was cleaning/prepping off old rusty steel

            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.

                    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.

                      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.

                        Me too, but I suspect the stomach can handle dirt better than lungs, lol.

                          This is our normal weld/grind attire.
