    Here is a good explanation of the new rules that I got from an email.

    I watched that yesterday, guess we're on the same email list from CDC Larue(80k$ fine article)

    It is a serious health risk breathing silica, I heard an interview on NPR about people in Africa developing silicosis and dying only after couple years breathing silica in mining operations.

    The dust thats created just mixing products can be nasty too.

    I got the whale tale from somewhere that attaches to a 5 gallon bucket and shop vac. used once or twice.

    Ardex school kind of surprised me they used one but nothing near what they can provide with an unlimited sum of money.

    Usually I would use a blower over the mix station to push dust away from face mixing outside.

    We did almost 4 pallets of Ardex K10 thursday, messy. I put myself in a good position with the air flow
