With the mention of CA in this thread, I'd urge everyone to wear eye protection when using it!

Mike Hellmund of Estes years ago told of having a drop of CA a get into his eye. Fortunately, it landed on his contact lens. Fogged it and it had to be thrown away. His eye was fine.

That story scared the "you know what" out of me. I wear safety glasses whenever I'm in my shop, and when on the lathe, and most of my stationary power tools, I wear a face mask. i worked with someone who was turning alabaster on his lathe, and it flew apart. His jaw was broken. In retrospect, he was lucky he didn't lose an eye.

OK, now back to happy thoughts ... 😀
