On a side note today, I know a lot of jewelers, and ones who have been at it for many years, who don't wear face masks.  I find that if I don't use one, even for simple sanding and filing tasks, I can feel the little particles getting into my lungs.  So I highly recommend to use a face mask if you are making anything that requires filing or sanding.  Any simple one from the hardware store will help, as long as it's rated for sanding.

I get the same thing, more that it really gets up my nose, causing me to sneeze all over everything. The only thing that really bothers me is the use of safety glasses hinders the sight while working on items..

I agree on the safety goggles, they never really worked well for me, drove me nuts essentially!
