    I find that my safety glasses always fog up if I use a mask at the same time . It is either one or the other .

    I don’t wear them as much as I should, but find that if you buy a good quality throw away it fits better.

    The North dust mask that I posted at the beginning of this thread is still my go to mask. I’ve found it to be by far the most comfortable dust mask that I’ve used and it never fogs up my glasses either. Also a lot more economical than disposables.

    Have you tried using shaving cream (not the gel) to clean the inside of the glasses with. It will stop the fogging

    I have use a disposable 3-M brand mask for spraying. It would work really good for dust and it didn’t interfer with my glasses a whole lot. I even have worn saftey googles with it.

    I like the 3-M when spraying as well. For dust these filters work well.

    Look into the 3M 6500 with the flip down option (Model number should have a QL after it):

    I have the older AO Safety version of that before 3M acquired AO Safety and the 6503QL since I couldn’t get cartridges that would fit the bayonet on the AO Safety version.

    Used the new mask while sanding tonight and I am overwhelmed with how excellent it works. With the exhaust being down it doesn’t get near glasses.

    That looks like a nice one. Did you get it at the HD? I have a lot of filters like that.

    Thanks for resurrecting this old thread.
    I bought my first pair of (non-safety)’cheaters’ about a month ago and they make a world of difference on close-up stuff. I’ve had (safety) bifocals for years – mostly unused.
    It’s getting to the point that I’m going to have to pair dust masks with them, and since I like the biggest lens glasses I can find, the masks often interfere.

    the mask dans talking about is great actually. the mask itself with one filter is $18 i believe. i picked one up about a year and a half ago. i use it only for milling up mdf. when doing demolition where plaster is involved i go to a heavy duty respirator

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    I have never heard of that before but I guess worth a try 🙂

    That’s a good thing. It means your respirator is doing it’s job

    I’ve never seen those types before . Look like a simple lock on .

    Always willing to learn .

    I’m either wearing a mask or safety goggles. Rarely both, the glasses always get dogged when I have a mask. I suppose having a big beard doesn’t help the mask seal much either.

    dust masks and glasses are a pain. Respirators work ok. I dont get the choice of one or the other on the job

    I like the ones with the face mask built in, still fogs up a little though
