    I've been wanting one for a while (it's a Trend Airshield, for those who don't recognize it), and I found a good deal on a nearly new (used 3 hours) one with two chargers and four batteries, as well as an unopened Accessory Pack with extra clear overlays, filters, and seals. I don't have any time to make dust tonight, but I should get a good chance to test drive it tomorrow night.

    I meant to add...if any of you guys who use one have any tips or tricks I should know about it, feel free to share. One thing that wasn't included was the instruction manual, but I've sent a request to Trend Customer Service to see if they can hook me up with one.

    You are going to love that thing Vaughn. I never do any sanding or finishing without it.

    The clear part goes over the FRONT of your head.....

    Nice get, I like my triton for sure, but that trend unit sure does look nice!

    Nah, I usually get my package deliveries there. That way they're not sitting on the porch at home all day tempting someone to grab them.

    Very nice, now don't forget to wear it. I wish I could remember to put mine on all the time. I'm doing better the I used to do. I have an older Racal Breathe Easy unit that I have had for more years than I care to admit, but it still works great and that's what counts.
