    I've got some fibreglass cloth and epoxy resin, which I'm going to use to fix a broken umbrella spar. Looks like this.

    Should I use a mask and goggles when cutting and using this type of fibreglass? And if so, what type of mask?

    Any advice much appreciated.

    A normal paper dust mask should be fine for a small amount.
    Wear gloves as well. Rubber disposable ones
