Thanks, mullman!

Good on ya for the tip. It is awfully easy to say 'just for this quick bit of epoxying, I don't feel like putting on the gloves or cartridge mask--I'll be real careful.'

So let's all try to be good.

Me, I use orange mechanic's type hand cleaner if I DO get some epoxy on an uncovered spot of skin. I read somewhere (Gougeon Bros, maybe?) that it is better than using solvents, because a solvent will carry some of the epoxy into your skin. In contrast, the abrasive hand cleaner removes it from your skin. But whatever you use, use it.

Note that vinegar is a solvent. So I don't usually use vinegar any more, once I heard the hand cleaner idea.
