I know you hate bargaining, but if I buy two, do I get a discount?

Do you get masks at Harbor Freight like I once did? I may have a small supply once I shake the sawdust off of them, but might cause a Pine Beetle infection, oh, well never mind.

No I don't use any safety equipment from a possibly subpar manufacturer, the current box I have is Milwaukee because it's what home depot had, normally I buy 3m. I only use the dust masks for work, around fiberglass and rat crap and drywall for the most part, if it's really dusty or I'm grinding cement products I step it up to a half mask respirator with p100 cartridges, knifemaking is all the respirator with p100 cartridges that do organic vapors add well, I'd like to avoid copd down the road if possible.

I would buy it but your not permitted to sell things in the lodge. By default you can't buy things either. Sorry but I'm a rule follower.

If you buy some masks, and they're marked, "Made in China" ... will you still use them?

With how long commercial shipping takes if they're on the shelf they were made packed and on the boat long before the Corona virus came out.

The current virus was first reported back in November 2019. (Hence, the 19 "COVID-19") If it was vacuum packed, should still have plenty of viable virus (viruses? Virii?) on them.

They don't vacuum pack the dust masks just throw x amount of them in a bag with a twisty and that goes in a box, the respirator cartridges are in sealed packaging though but still not vacuum packed.

My surgical masks are made in China, 99% effective in virus and bacteria control (so it says), and the box of 20 I bought a few years ago to wear to my too many doctor office visits was $3.89. I would guess the price of surgical masks has probably gone up. Actually, though I wear them to any doctor's office with my beard the chart for mask protection shows those of us with full beards as not having very good protection with a mask anyway.

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has instructed medical professionals to wear masks known as N95s, which are thicker, fit more tightly around the mouth and nose, and block out much smaller particles than surgical masks do.


Both masks help prevent the spread of droplets from a person’s cough or sneeze, but medical specialists have said that for average members of the public, surgical masks are generally not effective."


Unless yours are the N95 type ... they don't help much against viruses.
