Kerosene on wheel


#1

I find that if I dissolve any of my rouges in kerosene and use a small paint
brush to apply it to my buffing wheel (very small amount) it works much
better as the Kerosene acts as a lube.

What about fuming?..Aspiration of kerosene fumes is implicated in lung
hemorrhage and chemical pneumonia… do you just go to full mask rig every
time you polish?

The fumes from any crude oil based product are toxic and kerosene
fumes might be linked to several types of cancer including that of the
pancreas and perhaps that of the lymph nodes.If you work with a casting
furnace you need either lots of open windows or a power ventilated fume
fume hood and and it is preferable to have both.Cyanide plating solution
and/or stripping solutions produce very toxic fumes that can cause heart
failure and subsequent death…If you work with them be sure and have
the antidote kit which in my state does require a prescription.Never
work without the fume hood and keep the doors closed on it if possible
or as much as possible and also return the solution to a sealed
container and don’t allow it to remain in open air or the beaker any
longer than necessary.Kerosene is mild in comparison to electroplating
solutions containing cyanide…safety is important and proper information
and procedures should follow common sense…G…
