I heard about Steve through his informative blog of Scrollsaw Workshop. Steve did a good review of Dust Bee Gone back in April 2010. He likes the Dust Bee Gone:

“The mask comes in three sizes so you can find a good fit. It has a double strap design that is fully adjustable and a mold-able wire nose piece. Fit is obviously an important consideration to get a good seal from the dust. After adjusting my Dust Bee Gone it fits great and is by far the most comfortable mask I have used.

I have only worn the mask for a short time but I am thrilled to report it does not fog my glasses at all. I am feeling comfortable that I can wear this dust mask without the need to rip it off in the middle of a job. A dust mask is only useful if you will wear it so this test is looking good so far.”

I was curious how Steve would feel about Totobobo mask. I send him an email and ask if he would be interested to review Totobobo. Gladly he did! After testing he posted a quick review in the Scrollsawwworkshop blog:

“So far I like this mask. This will probably be my go to mask for emptying my dust collector. I get a large amount of dust in the air during the process and this mask seals better than my Dust Be Gone. If it filters the dust as well as I think it will then I might give this mask a slight edge over the Dust Bee Gone.”

We didn’t pay Steve anything except providing the mask for him to evaluate. We also agree that he may decided not to do a review if he don’t feel like it. Steve want to share his honest opinion because he feel protection from dust is a serious matter, as he say:

“Everyone should be aware of the dangers of breathing the dust from our saws. Exposure to wood dust has long been associated with a variety of adverse health effects, including dermatitis, allergic respiratory effects, mucosal and nonallergic respiratory effects, and cancer. It needs to be taken serious. Some people will see symptoms almost immediately while others might work for years before they realize their health has been affected.”

Thanks to Steve’s review, I notice a rush of orders from the scrollsawerworkshop readers. They are not only scroll saw hobbyist, but also other woodworking related field such as woodturning, and wood crafting. Many of them said they want to try Totobobo after reading Steve’s review. To me it is clear that Steve’s blog is highly trusted and regarded by his thousands of subscribers. You can find FREE scroll saw patterns, video demonstrations, scroll saw links, reviews, and much more. Steve’s website is mainly supported by donation and the subscription is free.

Why Totobobo SuperCool mask sucks? Traffic fume!

Cyclists and Motorcyclists! If you are looking for a pollution mask that really sucks, your long awaiting search has come to an end. The new pollution mask from TOTOBOBO, called SuperCool mask, is designed to suck more, traffic fume that is— leaving only the clean air for your lung. Its high efficient filter keeps the nasty nano-particles out and doesn’t diminish the oxygen you pull in with each breath.

“The SuperCool is the world’s first pollution mask with the nose uncovered. Such unexpected feature brings surprising advantages. First of all, exhaling through the nostrils will never fog up your glasses. Having the nose free means you can clear your nose while protecting your lungs – a necessary edge when racing traffic or just cruising through town.” according to Francis Chu, a cyclist and the designer of SuperCool. “You can even switch between nose and mouth breathing instantly when riding through alternate clean and polluted area – no need to stop to remove or put on the mask.”

Whereas other masks require intense scrubbing to keep them clean, the TOTOBOBO can be washed and dried within minutes. Your breathing gear will no longer have a funky film of week-old bacteria. Even if you do, the SuperCool is easier to clean than the dishes in your sink. The rest of your cycling gear can be smelly and gross, but at least the one that covering your face should be kept clean—and odor free. Oh, and germs? No worries. The SuperCool is embedded with anti-microbial Silver ion inside out so nothing can grow on it.

The SuperCool mask is customizable to fit your face as need be. This helps to keep the best fit and seal. It also prevents your roommate or sibling from borrowing it and getting it covered in their germs.

The only way the TOTOBOBO SuperCool doesn’t suck is the SSS-look – Sleek, Slick and Slim, a far cry from other protective masks which look like the gear of a Storm-trooper from Star Wars. The SuperCool is small enough to fold into your pocket and weighs next to nothing (18 grams). It will slide under any helmet and leave plenty of rooms for glasses or goggles.

Best of all, the TOTOBOBO SuperCool mask is reusable, just replacing the filters as it turns grey. The SuperCool mask and filter are now available at You will even get a free reusable pouch for carrying the mask!
