It's fun to bang around the workshop and create whatever masterpiece catches your fancy. As hobbyists it is easy to forget that chemicals and wood dust can mess up your day or even send you off to the emergency room. I use ammonium carbonate when I heat treat and and I gupled some noxious fumes that sent me out to buy a cannister respirator that same day. Jim Payne was a great builder but the Payne bluing agent is just plain bad for you, use with extreme caution. Urac glue can irritate your skin if you don't wear gloves, no glove, no love. Wood dust, particularly some of the exotic ones we "turn" to make reel seats can cause severe problems for some people and I mean severe, be careful, wear a simple mask when working with fine wood dust, your lungs will thank you. We build for fun, make sure you do it safely.
