Hey Ford Six, we should make this a Pinned or 'sticky' thread at the top of the garage/workshop forum here. Kinda like a read first type of deal.

I have worked with brake cleaner for years and was not aware of this. Thanks to the OP for putting it up, even if it's been mentioned before.

I use a product called "Non-Chlorinated BC", anyone know if that stuff reacts the same way as regular BC?

And I'm sure that if it doesn't, there are equally bad side effects that could result from its use. Not sure what they are and I don't intend to find out through experience.

Use adequate ventilation and INSPECT so there's no solvent left to cause problems no matter what you use.

Use resources like welding forums if curious about a process or anything else you've not worked with before.

PPE is your friend. Wear it, maintain it properly, and remind others to do so.

Wow, thanks for posting this. This is a reality check to make sure to always have proper ventilation and use the best safety procedures when welding almost anything.

Thanks again for posting that.

I remember when he posted what happened on another site that I go to a lot and more then a few people were shocked at what almost killed him. I was justing thinking about this yesterday when I was welding my bench grinder stand. For what I'm welding it doesn't have to be spotless and oil free but I always rmember his post.

While I never intend to weld but having once been a welding inspector (visual only, not integrity-related) this is a very fascinating and informative bit of safety advice. Will fully agree regardless its age its still pertinent and valuable as a reminder or forewarning

Another ^^^ vital contribution even though I edited a bit of the original comment. Fumes of any sort are potentially dangerous, whether their odor is noticeable to life forms. Something thought to be odorless still has a huge potential for causing ill effects or general safety hazards such as combustion.

Welding is a technology that needs to be better understood, its safety practices followed very carefully even by the most casual or infrequent users.

Good post!

I had never heard of this either. I weld quite a bit. Thanx for this being posted. Just happen to run across it. On thing for sue though is I never buy chlorinated brake cleaner. Always use the non chlorinated.

Thank you for this post!

I do a fair amount of welding and never knew that brake cleaner could be so toxic. I just purchased a new Miller Dynasty 210 and am about to start teaching myself how to Tig.

Thank you again for such an informative post.

Mike
