I wear glasses and I think those would have too thin of a seal to accommodate them. I took your advice and found an environmental supply store called jendco that was amazing. I ended up trying on a few respirators and decided half face was the way to go. Then I found some goggles that sealed good with the respirator on.
I also got some blacksmith tongs in the mail the other day!

In my last pic, is that filter sufficient for dust? It didn't say HEPA that I saw but it is a p100

That violet color is a HEPA (Filters are color coded.) and is an extreme filter and would get clogged up easily. Here is a trick I used to make my filters last longer, I would tape a piece of a porous paper towel to cover the opening. Saved clogging up my filters. I presume you made sure your mask will take other filters as well.

Yes it will take many filters. What ones do you recommend I get to replace those? I will use the paper towel idea as well.

It all comes down to common sense. Use a damp cloth to clean your respirator. If the HEPA filter becomes clogged then you blow it out from the opposite side a couple of times and then switch for new. I did that with several filters and that doubled their lives. As for chemical filters this is not really the place to go into it. It is a vast field and usually not worth the expense. The insecticide filter is good enough for knife making and use fresh belts on micarta so fumes are not an issue. No need to overthink this guys.
