Gas Mask for Vinyl Record Fumes
I'm going to be cutting some vinyl records with a hot wire (it looks like this uchida.com/p-92-super-hotwire-foam-cutter.aspx#productDetailTabs)
I am making vinyl coasters, they look like this: servedraw.com/wp-content/uploads/recycled-vinyl-coasters.jpeg I plan to make 200 of them.
I googled and found answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20130622103313AAqjdBv and buildlog.net/blog/2010/07/laser-cut-vinyl-record-bad-idea/ but am not certain how credible they are. Needless to say, I am concerned about the fumes.
I plan to cut my coasters with the hot wire outside, with a fan blowing the air away from me seabreeze.ca/fans/TurboAire/turboaire.html
Is this enough protection? Do I need some sort of gas mask? What kind? Do I need a respirator with a refillable cartridge system? That might be a bit pricey, and I would opt to wait until I made and sold a couple dozen before buying something like that. Would that be safe? How lethal is burnt vinyl?
Any advice would be welcome, and maybe you know some sort of safety guidelines or personal that could advise me further.

I think you want the "recycled vinyl coaster forum", not the FIREFIGHTERS forum.
