That DeWalt shroud is only for grinding. It won't work for cutting. I know I've seen some that will work for that application.
I'm not going to be lugging a HEPA vacuum everywhere I go though so that's why I was inquiring about the respirator. Plus I use my sawzall most of the time anyway.
I'll see if I can try out different sizes and find one that works. I'm just tired of using q-tips to clean out my nostrils and them coming out like I've been in a mine all day, haha.

That one comes with two guards.

I still think his best bet is to electrical tape a garden hose to the pipe pointing at the cut and set it to a trickle like I do.

Want privacy from the diy/hacks? Too bad, the motherland has fallen, freedom is dead.

I use my Milwaukee cordless vacuum when cutting drywall, tile, wood, etc..
it does a great job keeping dust/dirt under control and minimizing job-end clean up.
