PSA: Don't get carb&choke cleaner in your face/eyes

it burns... alot!

Well that's about the highlight of my carb cleaning sesion last night - i wash blowing the cleaner thru the jets to clean em out and the nozzle somehow slipped. Next thing I know I got a moneyshot of Toluene all over my face. Whoops.


I can still see though, so Halik 1 Toluene 0

Same goes for electrical contact cleaner. Got that one about 6 months ago, and I don't think that memory will leave me any time soon!

Been there, ate that!
It's nice when you pull brand new Ti-coated cobalt drills from the index with bare hands.. Then an hour later spray cleaner to clean the hands... Amazing how many slices you find that only start to bleed at that moment
