    Do as much assembly as feasible outdoors.

    I was very glad for a respirator when I was gluing PVC pipe.

    •  I hear ya (5+ / 0-)

      I've been spray painting some old milk crates and couldn't get by without a mask. I wish it were a full on respirator but for the few times I'd use one I can't justify the expense.

      I rarely use spray paint, but when I do it's always outside and at least 25 feet from any windows or doors. I'm fortunate to have that kind of space to work with. My neighbor does her spraying on the patio so the fumes end up in my bedroom. Can't convince her to look up "huffing" on the net so she doesn't much care about damaged sinus passages and dead brain cells. Just wish they weren't mine, LOL.

      Peace.

      Creativity is intelligence having fun.
