    So working on some safety on our jobsites. Found ear protection and safety glasses but looking for face masks when cutting pavers. Anybody know of any good places to find these. I didn't like the throw away dust masks, would like to find something re-usable and each guy on the crew will have one whether he wears it or not. Spending a day just cutting pavers and breathing that in just can't be good for the lungs.

    Use a tile saw with water. Masks are a pita simply because they fog up the glasses.

    Why not a paver saw with water? Tile saws are usually under powered
