If anyone has a suggestion for a better mask at a reasonable price, please share.

I'm not the frail type. I'm pretty old-school --- I don't wear gloves and tend to roll my eyes at using too much by way of safety equipment (ear protection, safety glasses, etc.). I know, I know . . . but after using tools for 40+ years, it's hard to argue that "you'll put your eye out" when I never have thus far. But I've found out the hard way that you don't screw around with mold. And once your lungs get a good dose of them, it certainly seems like you are much more sensitive to exposure to them going forward.
Once the chips have begun to steam, you really need to exercise caution. Try to stand upwind and make sure you use a properly rated resperator.
