Whether bent on harvesting your own wood with a chainsaw or just trimming branches, you must play it safe. And there’s more to it than the right saw and protective clothing.
I recently bought an HVLP sprayer. So far, I’ve applied water-based finishes while wearing just a cheap respirator. I’d like to get a better respirator for spraying other types of finishes.

Few air cleaners are UL-approved. Am I the only one to run into this?
