    Do you wear a mask when sanding?

    This whole COVID-19 thing, and mandatory face mask wearing has brought up an old wonder-topic for me: Do you wear a mask when you sand plastic and putty?

    Please vote, but also post a response.

    OK, I’ll answer, since I asked

    I didn’t used to, but now I do. It dawned at me that, breathing in plastic, styrene, putty, and whatever else probably isn’t great for your lungs. I would imagine the majority of people do not, but I decided to go the safe route.

    I use an N95 (though I am currently out)...
