Thanks for the heads up, I have been known to use the stuff in the same way, just lucky I guess.

I'd not heard this one before ... but in 2 seconds of a search I came up with a LOT more stories just like yours. This one for example:

DANGER using BrakeCleaner to clean your Parts

Since I have done pretty much the same thing, I decided to check what I had on the shelf. I bought a couple cans of CARQUEST WEAREVER Brake Parts Cleaner less than a month ago.

Guess what? The contents are not even listed on the can! All the can tells us is "This product contains a chemical or chemicals know to the State of California blab, blab, blab!" NOTHING that would tell even a concerned consumer what was in the can. I had to search for a Material Safety Data Sheet for the answer.

Heating chemicals can change them from a material that is safe to work with into a killer. Heating freon, for example, can have the same deadly results.

Sorry If I hijacked your thread but ...

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THIS WARNING!!!

I will be passing this on.

Well crap! I wrecked my back working on the sculpted concrete bench project. Been laying flat for three days and it is still giving me fits. So don't look for any updates for a while. It's been ten years since the last time it went south and back then I wound up in the hospital with a morphine drip going into my spine. Not any fun that I want to repeat so I am having to try and let it heal.

But I HATE being immobilized and make a really lousy patient. Grrrrrr!

Tang,

Don't know if you live near your studios, but now that I'm getting the "Park & Ride" runs on a somewhat regular basis, I'll be driving by and giving the "Shave & Haircut" honk when I cruise by...... moral support. Best I can do since I don't have time right now to give some "back" support.

Prayin' for ya!

Really sorry to hear that Tango. I know the feeling, I've had the same issue myself years ago and now am always leary of re-injuring it again. Hope you get better soon.
