    MDF is hazardous!

    I was curious and did a google search for MDF and this is what turned up:

    Disadvantages: -MDF can be dangerous to use if the correct safety precautions are not taken. MDF contains a substance called urea formaldehyde, which may be released from the material through cutting and sanding. Urea formaldehyde may cause irritation to the eyes and lungs. Proper ventilation is required when using it and facemasks are needed when sanding or cutting MDF with machinery. The dust produced when machining MDF is very dangerous. Masks and goggles should always be worn at all times. Due to the fact that MDF contains a great deal of glue the cutting edges of your tools will blunt very quickly.
    Found that interesting to read... Anyone heard of this before?

    Re: MDF is hazardous!

    formaldehyde's in MDF, masonite, fiberboard, particle board, and pretty much any other pressed pulp-based product.

    that's why you feel so good after you finish a new box.

    it's the wet kicking in.

    Re: MDF is hazardous!

    my boss told me he tried it once back when he was heavy into drugs

    he said

    " i was so ****ed up that i had to go through the drivethrough to get beer, cause i couldn't get out of my car"

    too ****ed up to stand, but fine to drive to the drivethrough?

    I work with some characters, man

    and if he's been there and done that, you know there's people out there doing the same thing right now.........

    this world is ****ed up

    Re: MDF is hazardous!

    yeah I got a quarter pound of some **** that was dipped, cured, and chopped in pure formaldehyde. Pure black, tasted like ****, but it ****ed you up beyond belief, I ended up keeping 2 or 3 joints and sold the rest for $400

    Everyone NEEDS to wear a mask. I didn't use to, and now I'm stuck with a chronic cough that will never go away basically. You can't just open your lungs and scoop it out. Same stuff happens to painters, so just be careful.
