MUST WATCH: spontaneous combustion in workshop! Guy runs 18 simultaneous test, gets 3 fires within less than 12 hours!


HA!!! I just posted this in the Topic about waterproofing MDF and the discussion of using BLO in there.

Fascinating. I just put the oily rags inside some kind of container together with plenty of water… I’m still confident that it’s good enough, but it’s scary how quick it can combust!

Hahaha I literally was just coming here to post this


When I was in printing we used oily rag cans (closed lid, designed for this) just for this reason. In my own shop I have 2, and I don’t use flammable finishes much.

I lay them out on the garage or basement floor (both concrete). I also don’t use nearly as much finish as that guy did. :slight_smile:

Not saying it can’t happen, but certainly raises some valid points about the legitimacy of this particular video

Dude sure rocks that video, lol. And peeps wonder why i dont youtube :wink:
