to protect my marlb...ro lungs i need a respirator (mask) (not a paint booth yet)
i'm sprying something similar like DN as topcoat and createx as well...(not to mention epoxy )
what kind of mask do i need, what should it have, and how often do i need to change the filter etc....

You need an N95 prefilter and an organic vapor cartridge. Change the vapor cartridge when you can smell the paint.

What do you guys use for wood dust? I'd like to have one repirator that I can us for turning lures and maybe change cartridges for painting.

Use a good dust mask for sawdust and sanding dust, and a respirator for solvents and fumes and painting/finishing.

You can buy an appropriate respirator at most auto part stores. I bought my last one at Wal-Mart near the paint section. Make sure you store the mask in an air-tight container when you aren't using it because they continue to filter even if they aren't being worn. I use a coffee can to store mine or a large zip-loc bag.
