First thing, start using an enclosed face shield with filtered air. It doesn't matter what wood is causing it, you are alergic. That stuff can kill ya! Don't mean to be so sharp, but WE want you around and not having to go through all the treatments caused by not using one.
I didn't use one at first. but after having a little trouble with some of the exotics I love, I bought one. Now I won't turn without it.
Now to the good part. That HF is OUTSTANDING!!!
