A Tip

When grinding metal parts, it is wise to either keep very good track of which parts were just ground, and which pieces have been sitting for awhile, or let all pieces cool before handling.

Another tip: Should you fail to do the above, soak the burn in cool water, then apply aloe or an antibiotic ointment.

Trust me. I should know.

Another tip: Metal which is hot but NOT RED hot, looks just like metal which is cold.

I think you and Tammi should just be encased in bubble wrap before heading out to start your respective days. Of course, hot metal would probably just melt the bubble wrap and you'd still get burned. Nevermind. Try the toothpaste thingy.

VERY good tip, Og...

And Jerry, normally I don't have to worry about that, but I'm not used to having someone talking to me and asking me to check out things elsewhere. I better learn quickly...

Also...After cutting a 2 foot diameter-3/8" thick steel pipe with an oxy-acetylene torch... keep your friggin' gloves on before attempting to move it. (Still hot after 15 minutes) Ouchie!
