Fumes and staying safe

Hey there! My name is kendal and i am so new to all of this. I see fumes are a problem. What do i need to stay safe, thanks in advance!

Good exhaust ventilation is always desired. If you are not certain that you are protected from the fumes/suspended particles, you need to be wearing a welding type mask with the P95 rating.

This is the mask I wear.
3M Rugged Comfort Quick Latch Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator 6503QL, NIOSH, Cool Flow Exhalation Valve, Bayonet Connection, Silicone Face Seal, for Gases, Vapors, Dust, Maintenance, Construction,L Amazon.com

And if you are using fans and filters for ventilation, be sure to take into account that there is a fire resistance that is required or you could burn your shop/house/motorhome down.

I move my table outside but that is not always feasible… Especially with the XR.

Thank you very muxh for your reply. I would really appreciate advice on the ventbsystem i should be biying. I will also have a co2 laser going that will meed vented

Here is another topic/thread that might give you some ideas.

For someone to give you specifics on your situation you might draw a floor plan, show where there are windows and doors that can be opened, total square footage, is there living space connected or above?

I don’t have any answers for you but you will probably get more input if you give more specifics.
