Well, i love you Dave, but you certainly know how to kill a buzz!
i know it comes from a place of concern! But im sure the 3 years I spent sanding aluminium window frames with little more than a particulate mask caused me to ingest far more aluminum than smoking a wooden bowl, which is where the heat is, once or twice a week could cause in several years. Especially since I don't plan on chewing on the frame! Don't change brother! Your seminars are always enjoyable and more often than not very educational.

No problem. I give the warnings. Itís not like we all havenít done the jobs that probably have taken time off our lives. When 15, polishing jewelry we wore safety glasses and had a air evacuation system, but I didnít think about wearing a mask. I would come out and my apron would be coated with jewelry polish: tripoli, yellow, rouge and occasionally green for stainless.
At lunch I would blow my nose and the nastiest powdered stuff would come out. I would cough it up for a good 10 minutes.
That canít have been good. As my FIL says, I donít get a lead paint certification because Iím sure I housed that are 80+ years old that thereís leaded paint. Iím in my 70s. What that knowledge going to do.
Itís kind of like inhaling depleted uranium if you were in the field, in the sand and near any firing range. Sure, itís safe. It may be minimally radioactive, but itís far from safe.
Still Iíll take an Apache coming in to help out any day, especially in support of medivac helicopters.
Life is 100% lethal over time. Iíve never met a 100 year old person that was moving around like they were 30. My grandfathers inhaled enough coal dust, where one had to have a lung removed. It didnít kill him though.
Enjoy the radiator pipes.
