Question to you master preppers out there. When you prep with hand tools such as dental picks, sewing pins, etc, do you wear respirators? I know with the air abrasive you need to be careful, but I'm wondering how much of those tiny particles are released when doing a more mechanical prep. I'd like to set up a nice prep workshop as I bought the pneumatic tools, but don't want to use them until I figure out a safe way to use them without making a mess of my garage or venting it outside where my kids play. Until then I thought I'd try and give it a go with hand prepping, but want to make sure I'm protecting myself as well as my family as the kids will undoubtedly want to be part of it. i imagine that it wouldn't hurt more than playing in the sandbox, but just curious what others opinions are on it. The matrix I'd be removing would be Pierre shale, sandstone from hell creek, and maybe dolomite. Thanks in advance.
I brought home another 3 boxes of fossils from my other property and went through them the other day. Two of the boxes were unprepped ammo material, but in the 3rd box was a very nice and rather rare crab carapace in a concretion I found many many years ago. I found this way up in Northern California in either the Scotia Sandstone Formation or the Rio Dell Formation. I cant remember now. This is just the way the rock 'popped' open. I left it just the way it is. Just cooler than you know what! RB
