hah I'd rather not read the MSDS chart...... I'm a germaphob, yet I have no problem getting my hands completely black if I'm working on a car..... I kind of enjoy it, actually [hihi] yeah I'd be wearing gloves too, cause of the brake fluid or brake cleaner.

are you gonna clean off that rust? and looks like we have either a boat or a plane in progress (don't ask, but you never know, it COULD be a plane [thumb]

Haha yea, I love gettin my hands black workin on a car, but i don't want em dyed blue from that stuf haha. And yea, I'm gonna buy a brass polishing wheel for my dads bench grinder and get all that rust off of the rotors.

And sadly its not a plane, its a 14' wooden boat in progress.

and its good to wear rubber gloves... i used to work all the time without gloves because i thought it was more manly... but now that i have a baby on the way i want my hands to be soft for her.

Yeah, I know, but it is SO FAST! lol A friend of mine uses it to clean anything you can imagine. He even uses it inside the car to spot clean the carpet, seats, even the headliner. I watched him take heavy grease stains off his pickup's headliner. No residue or trace of grease or cleaner.

Personally, cleaning my hands is as far as I will go with it.
