> Decent reusable resperator

Any suggestions for a decent respirator for grinding and welding? One of the reusable ones with the removable filter. I have a 3m one but it doesn't fit under my helmet so only good for grinding. Can't justify getting an air fed helmet yet so after a mask which you can just leave on all day

why the problem with getting an air fed screen mate?
Your employer should provide PPE such as this FREE OF CHARGE.

Don't really need an air fed mask can't justify all that money on one to barely use it. 90% of the jobs we do are fine it's the odd few repairs that come in with glue and rust etc is a bit nasty.

We've got paper masks but they're no good with safety glasses

have a butcher's at the JSP Force 8 mask respirator mate.

Screwfix do them.

A side vented jobby, should be OK under a welding screen, plus the P3 filters are disposable.
