Response to Toluel
Joe, if this could have been posted 20 years ago it might have saved me a lot of grief. I used to work at place that used Toluene by the drum frequently. Washing the greased metal tubing with it, no gloves, it was used as paint reducer too, in a shop where the spraying was just done in the corner, no real booth.
I would usually get really sick and have to leave early once a week but pretty much every day i'd get nausea.
I knew it was nasty stuff but not how nasty until years later when the effects sunk in.
That and welding galvanized forced me to quit a job I really enjoyed otherwise.
