  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Note that TalkBass will host unlimited attachments for you, all the time, for free ;)  Just hit that "Upload a File" button.  You are also free to use our Media Gallery if you want a place to create albums, organize photos, etc :)

    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:
