When I studied welding we were STRONGLYwarned about zinc being toxic. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" /> Well all welders believe that. I was really taken aback after looking up some more information on the toxicity. I was forbidden from welding my snowshoes from galvanised steel in the school welding shop. There are stories of ship welder dying - maybe urban legand? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Oh well, live and learn. We all used to play with mercury. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />
