Wanna have a listen, I would like to get your opinion on what I came up with. I only live about an hour away. I'm semi-retired so I could drive up anytime.

Quick story

I'm out in the shop priming the MDF prototype boxes with Zinsser BIN primer (Ethanol, Butane, Acetone based) . Forced air respirator on, happy as a clam.

The wife comes in says "It's stinky in here, and cold... want me to turn the propane heater on?" and heads over to the open flame propane heater.

Screaming, tripping over crap and waving my arms at her to stop while trying to pull the respirator off my head.

She looks at me puzzled and stops. Lets out a single "What?"

I get the mask off and calmly point out that the air in the shop is currently explosive...

She turns around to leave and asks if I want a beer... and runs off

She is a master of redirection. I never got that beer

WOW. I hope you got yourself the beer when you got back inside...

I would have needed more than a beer after that...a shot or two of really good rum would have been the ticket.

Spraying or brushing? Brushing might not be so bad, but spraying is like a DIY fuel-air bomb. :0
