I’m still reorganizing my crafting shed. Lots of table room opened up
the instant I placed my space heaters on shelves I created between
the studs for that purpose. Then I turned on the space heaters, and
I plugged in a clock-radio and was having fun all night listiening to
rock as I kept cleaning.
My wife offered me a left-over Mr. Coffee single-mug electric coffee
maker to take with me unto the shed to also keep me warm. She’s
wonderful that way
But if I am going to use the Sparex #2 pickle powder I have
available, I realize that is anhydrous sulfuric acid, and it will be
kept warm in a covered small crock pot.
I also realize from high school shop class that it is a very bad
idea to drink anything in the same room as volatile materials.
Should I nix the coffee maker in case vapors from the Sparex reach
the coffee? Or is there some reasonably safe distance to put the
coffee maker and the pickle pot, such as 8 to 10 feet apart (half
the length or the entire width of the shed)?
