[xj] Re: Clean my hands of it!

Nitrile rubber gloves will out perform latex when exposed to caustics
without sacrificing feel. They are available at better marine supply
stores. They are designed for use with epoxy. I have used them during an
extensive sailboat restoration as well as for mechanical matters.
Slightly more expensive but worth it in durability, I have not used
latex gloves since discovering them.

Another tip - if your not using gloves, rub a small amount of waterless
hand cleaner on your hands BEFORE you start your work. Afterwards clean
up will be much easier as it prevents the grease and grime from getting
a good hold on your skin. Try it, it really works!

Rich, these hints are definitely “a good thing” and should be forwarded
to Martha Stewart, for her new piece on proper mechanicking. {:o]–
