Re: Ozone filters/absorbers (fwd)

    In a reacent run with Mike Tucknotts coil in my small garage, we managed to
build up the ozone level to something quite dangerous, I was ill for days
afterwards. Since then I purchased a set of half mask respirators from RS along
with ozone filters, cost about 15 for the mask, and 40 for 10 sets of filters
( each is good for one day of coiling, but can't be reused ).
    They are incredibly effective, the ozone level can be high enough to make
you choke without the masks, and with them you can't even smell it.
