Is there a secret to making one of those dust masks work with a 6"+ beard? or am i just screwed? i've been working on sanding an old table for 2-3 days and have been wearing a dust mask the whole time but my beard is getting in the way and leaving a gap. i've been hacking up brown crap and caughing all day. dunno wtf to do. i dont think i could bring myself to take too much off the beard. thinking about buying a dust collection system but im not sure if that would help enough or not.
