    A lot of the advice is good for reasons in addition to mitigating fire risk

    Working in a clean, well lit, shop is much more fun than struggling in a dingy pit piled high with stuff

    stopping work when you get tired, frustrated, or have an adult beverage reduces the error count

    cleaning up at the end of the day can be done while waiting to see if anything is smoldering

    used/etc oily rags should be thrown in a garbage can .lot keep the shop clean ... so making it a flameproof one is just as easy as a flame-enhancing one

    and so on

      From a 4-year-old thread:

      "Linseed oil spontaneous combustion caught in the act"

      The action starts at 2:00
