    The link to the respirator doesn’t work when I try it.
    I’ll just wear a mask if I’m working with it – I didn’t know there was wood that was toxic to cut – but thought you’d like to know in case you’ve got it there as an affiliate link.

    Fixed thanks. I’m not sure how bad it actually is but I was cutting the heck out of it all day and getting my face right in it to film. I was so sick that night I wanted to go to the ER.
