My school reports often said "easily distracted" nope, easily bored.......not my fault my teachers couldn't teach in an interesting way. A.D.D wasn't even around when I was at school either.

am I a fellow dyslexic too! Reading is really had for me at times. The words will jump or shake. Whats worse, my mind thinks there should be another word and places it in the sentence. I wanted so much to go into theater, but I could never read my lines right. Whats worse is know that there are many actors that are dyslexic! But we are VERY talented individuals too! Not only can we see out side the box, but were can see every side and tell you about. Most people can't. Is it a handicap, only if you let it hold you back! Ever tried read wearing yellow lenses? It helps some, it did me...only years later finding it out. I can remember teaches telling my folks, he isn't trying hard enough. I was in school when there wasn't a word known as dyslexia. Hag tight, there's more of us than there is of them! throw in a little A.D.D and you...oh look cookies!

Do not try to remove the bit of your Dremel tool BEFORE you turn the &$^#@! thing off! Trust me, you only do this once...okay twice, before you learn this isn't a good idea! Words of wisdom to learn by.

as a dyslexic. I have to say... I understand the urging to better ones self, but as someone who is/was involved in small business in my city. a lot of the successful people aren't the best spellers and don't speak english very well...and its their native language. of the people that are making money and well to do, I know TEACHERS ( and that hurts my brain) who can't spell right and still write "A lot"...

I get the urging and clearly you aren't mocking him. But I work hard a lot to not slip back words. and I have to agree with bob, Pm him. cause even if you mean well...it probably doesn't sit well.
Also its the internet...And no I don't like or want whole thread that say things like
"DUUD u r teh BST!"
but this is the birth place of "LOLSpeak" "Leetspeak" and Memes.But I do second ( hopefully without sounding like a hypocrite) a browser that has a spell checker...you would not want to see what my short hand typing looks like without one ;]

We've been pretty good about not teasing him as much so once in a while isn't too bad.

Must you use this safety thread to teach pock how to spell. If you want to complain about that.....hit that little PM button. No need to public ridicule him. Everyone here knows he has an issue with spelling, which has got much better lately, because of the endless joking posts.
The horse is dead......please stop kicking it.

Fair enough bob.

Heh, when it's kids learning a second language that monkey up spellings, it's cool. When it's people whose English is their first language...

Your spelling still hurts my brain Pock. You'll automatically have more respect from people when communicating within the customizing community.

Cheers, and happy new year.

you have no idea lol. it burns if they're seperate its worse when they're mixed and reacting because then its like glue. I never too the temp but I know the stuff I use gets hot enough to deform the mixing cups I use adn they're meant to hold coffee. I usually end up holding it with a rag in case.

Wow. I guess I'm very dangerous. I do all the stuff you guys have said not to on a daily basis. No, really, I do. Only thing I can add, and I do this all the time, is when u pop a fresh tube of glue, don't hold the cap in ur lips right after. It hurts.

Don't cut yourself with the exacto blade! I did this four or five times over the weakend. The first time the exacto blade snaped and pieces went flying. All the other times my hand just slipped. Also when using a power sander be carfull not to sand youre finger tips because that HURTS!

I got one, don't lick the paint brush, don't eat the sculpt, don't inhale super glue, and don't hold stuff in your teeth. Just my two pennies, even though non of that ever happend to me, it might happend to some of the younger customizers...

New safety tip:

When working with acetone, goof off, goo b gone and similar chemicals:

-Do it outside if you can cause the fumes will give you a killer head ache and might do brain damage.

-Be careful of the plastics you use it on.

-Don't pour the chemical into a plastic cup, it will melt the cup.

goggles are a good idea anyhow, especially using a dremel and if you wear glasses DON'T wear a good pair. Next time you get a new set keep the old ones for working with stuf tht could damage them. Even dust'll scratch the lenses and I don't know about you but I don't have the money or insurance for new glasses.

Yeah I've learned to be careful about that after my 3 stitches. Also always follow blade safety and cut AWAY from yourself.

keep you younger brother away from you when dremeling, you just might "aceddently" loose control of your arm, seriuosly though, don't dremel and talk at the dsame time, and keep an eye on the dremel and target

It's a good idea to wear at least one rubber glove with the glue not just to prevent your fingers from getting glued together but also to prevent skin contact that can lead to an allergy to the chemicals in the glue.

Well I know if you want to apply super glue, or any kind of foul smelling paint, you gotta be in a well venilated area. Stay as close away as possible, but close enough to see what you are doing. You can even wear goggles and/or mask to protect your eyes and lungs from the fumes. Your eyes will sting, tear up a little. Your lungs, well you know when you hit an overdose of inhaled superglue fumes...I suggest a fan, because even in these hot days of summer, the air isn't really going to be helpful, it's just going to sufficate you...

The best dust mask is a dual cartridge filter one like you see in the paint areas of Lowe's or any store such as Sears too. It can be pricey but is worth it.
