G'day guys,

Mine's everything based, dust, fumes, running, laughing (hard to avoid)
allergies (one red lifesaver and I have a massive asthma attack and go 
hyper active, never a good combination). Makes for some interesting
moments ;)

 >I haven't found any glues that are fume free.

Thanks I thought that might be the case.

 >Have you thought of making a fume hood?

Nope, but not a bad idea!!!!! I don't think I'm handy enough to make one

for myself but I'll look into getting one made once I start work in

Corey offered;
 >Again, I must champion the cause of white glue,

I use that for flocking and stuff, but its just not strong enough when
comes to scratch building stuff. Thanks anyway.

That's not a bad idea either!

I've seen my fair share of oxygen tents (they suck!) and have had oxygen

blood contents that were undetectable twice. IF anything its just made
determined not to let it stand in my way - though I was forced to give
diving (ran the risk until Lachy came along then thought better of how 
stupid I'd been).

I'll leave Derek to answer for himself with regard to the other matters

Thanks for all the help guys.
