I have seen on your profile that you are looking for spanish gas masks. I saw on ebay.es one that might be for you so if you are interested on that piece check it out. If you cant find it tell me and i will help you. Its an M3 from 1981 with bag included.
hey, so I know most of the masks on this wiki are for gas masks and respirators, but should we make a page about medical face masks, kn95 masks, cloth masks, or any type of half-face mask that isnt a technical respirator, these are, obviousely the most produced masks out there, so I was just wondering.
When talking about proper, filtering half masks we have already multiple articles like this, for example the Martindale Dust Mask. There are hundreds of different companies making these kind of masks, we added some of the historically significant ones. If you mind you can add some, but don't waste your time listing the endless modern types.
About surgical masks, they aren't proper masks at all, since they don't filter anything, so for now no articles on them is allowed.
Hey, I collect italian militaria from WW2 and I own a T35 gas mask which I wore unaware of the danger of hypothetical asbestos in its filter. In three years I probably wore it 10 times I suppose, maybe a little more (just to mess with some friends or to shoot pictures) each time not more than 5 or 10 minutes. Does it actually contain asbestos? If yes, should I see a doctor?
It doesn't contain asbestos, the particulate layer is made of resin impregnated wool and viscose rayon. It's not safe to breath through one for much, since most chemicals are decomposed at this time, but having done so won't affect you on the long term
Hey this might sound strange but while I was going into the add a picture section, one of the pages was about the XM30 mask and one look made me suspicious and well the person who made that page (not pointing fingers) apparently just coppied and pasted information directly from a PDF document about the history of US gas masks and well I had to rewite and find out a ton of history on the mask and stuff like that on that page. But, when I was finnished, my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to check out the XM29 page and it was just the same jarble from the same doccument. SO please could you look into this thanks. Attached is the link to the PDF file and some screenshots taken from the page and PDF file. if you want to look at this its page 51 in the PDF file.
Yes, the guy is a bit of problematic member, it's not the first time he copies and pastes entire articles from other sites. I thought he'd develop the article a bit after that, but he didn't, he made a lot of really short articles without adding much info, not ban-worthy but quite annoying nontheless. He doesn't edit anymore as of now. Thanks for editing the xm30 page a bit, I'm clueless about murican XM masks, really not my field.
