Hi, I need to get a respirator with full face mask and and airline.  It will
get used for processing dry gourds from the garden as well as other things.
And I seem to remember that some people on the list are involved in
industrial level safety precautions, so I thought I'd ask.

The ones with the nose and mouth covering and disposable filters don't allow
enough oxygen through for me.

What kinds are good to get?

I think I'd like one that I can plug in so I am not always having to get new
air tanks, but have never used anything like this before, so welcome advice
as to how to choose.
