    I just stumbled across these links in the Project Guitar forum. If you do any sanding, then you REALLY need to read this information. (Good examples of why I wear a mask that has carbon filters and ultra-fine pads... although that doesn't protect my skin... hmmm... hadn't thought about that until now.)

    Very interesting information. Thank you!

    I need to get a good mask. I rarely touch skin sensitzers ;)
    If I did, I'd find me a very good dustproof shirt and gloves. I've worked in an arsenic factory, where you really need these things, so I know they exist...but not where to find them :meh:
