    Any recommendations out there for respirators for general d.i.y work? Sanding, paint spraying etc.
    Thanks

    Depending on where in Brum you are johnee, get yourself to a place that does face fit testing, and seek their advice.

    I’ve got the a GVS one. (Next one down on screwfix site) Excellent, completely seals around face & easy to breathe in.
    It definitely pays to always have a really good mask as well as disposable ones.

    IS it right what I am seeing here?
    The JSP force 8 mask (including 2 filters) is £23
    A pair of replacement filters is £25???
    So making it cheaper to just buy a new mask when they need replacing?

    I would have thought a visor would have been better, especially in the night when its harder to control... :p

    Screw fix do three JSP replacement filters that will fit the JSP mask. Different quality, different price. £8.39, £24.99 and £29.98. The £23 mask comes with the £8.39 filters.
