Default respiratory protection when cutting MDF?

So I'm bout to start on a big wall project in my Jeep (23 cubes gross) and will be going through 5 sheets of MDF to get all my cuts...and there are gonna be LOTS of cuts. I have pretty bad allergies to even minor stuff like pollen, and MDF sawdust always kills me. I always do my cutting outside, but I still have problems. With my last few boxes I've built for me and my friends I've just been using those cheap disposable paper filter masks, but I still always end up with congestion, itchy eyes, etc. I'm assuming using an actual respirator with replaceable filters would probly work out better, and I would definatly invest in one if it were to help me out with my allergies. Does anyone else use these when working with MDF/any other sorts of wood when building their boxes?

mdf is poison, it will grow mold in your lungs and destroy your nervous system.
Always use protection when cutting it.

I have pretty bad allergies to even minor stuff like pollen, and MDF sawdust always kills me. I don't get it....and you gotta ask?? Protection/safety comes first.


Not a bad idea to. If I cut MDF, it's outside tho....plenty of ventilation around. If it was indoors, I'd wear one. Or if there's a ventilation system in tact, that's even better.

mdf sucks. use birch or cabinet grade pine. you will be better off and enclosure will be much lighter.
