    welding respirators and hoods for 10 year olds

    Has anyone had his kid try on a Miller type welding respirator? The grandson is becoming interested in welding and building mechanical things. I'm wondering if Millers small respirator would fit a young person properly. Any opinions on welding hoods for young persons would also be appreciated. Thank You, tackit

    My 8 year old has had a Huntsman fiber hood for at least 2 years now. He likes it. Not to heavy, will adjust to his head side. I don't require him to wear a respirator as I usually keep a fan on him if he's doing anything of concern.

    I have both Miller and 3M respirators. I believe the Miller respirator fits my 10 year old better than the 3M. As far as hoods, he prefers my Miller Digital Elite, as it's rather light and adjusts small enough for his head.

    If you have trouble finding a respirator that fits well you could also go with a small fume extractor.

    I've been looking at those for a while now, but we don't weld as much as we used to. If the grandson gets into welding hot and heavy, then it would be a very sensible addition to the shop.
