James-NSC writes: I like to do arts and crafts. I’ve been saving up motherboards for a while as a new medium and I started working on it last night. I wore the same gear I wear while painting – fine particulate respirator and safety goggles. I just cut some templates out of some motherboards and when I was done I used the shop-vac to clean myself & workspace up before removing my mask. Even after 5+ minutes, in a well ventilated area (not as well as it should have been apparently) my first breath was pins and needles. I’m looking into containment and exhaust solutions – ala baby’s first iron lung, but seriously, am I nuts? Are these materials just too toxic to work with?
