  • I'm tired...

    This is my 15th straight day of work. The clinic is usually closed on Sunday but we opened today so the patients could have thanksgiving day off. I work 3 days a week as a nurse and the rest of the week cleaning old machine tools. My 2nd job pays me with machine tools. but I've been working too much lately to fool with anything.
    I guess it'll be worth it when my shop is up and running.
    The hardest part is scrubbing my fingernails after working at the shop so my hands'll be clean the next day.
    Anyway, back to the shop tomorrow. I actually look forward to it. No whiney, needy people to deal with. Just me and a machine...
    I may actually get to do some machine work tomorrow.

        Ummm,elninio. You said you're into BMX bikes but never said what you want to do to them. Maybe if you posted some of your goals the board would be more helpful.
        Dave, most of the grease and grime actually sticks to the dishes...

          Waterless hand cleaner and a very soft tooth brush do wonders under finger nails and in the ridges.

          Quick and painless.

            It is my opinion that electrolysis causes the grease from my hands to go directly to the spoons forks and knifes...thus, your food is really made by mobil.

              hoffman,
              here's a solution and another cool tool to have too. Since you are cleaning up machinery anyway, maybe it would behoove you to have a parts washer. I find that since the "sink" is plumbed with mineral spirits and various handy brushes, it's perfect for cleaning hands and fingernails. Keeps the dirt out of the bathroom sink... Oh yea, it's great for cleaning parts too.

                Yea, I have a 20 gal parts washer full of that industrial no-rust cleaner. ($25 for 5 gal, what was I thinking? It's mostly mineral spirits with some naptha. Only 5 gals in the washer though, 10 gals of mineral spirits) That and a nail brush followed by some go-jo usually gets me scrubbed up nicely.
                Parts washers are nice to have...

                  Some of those cleaners are pretty caustic. Make sure you wear rubber gloves when cleaning your hands with them.
                  I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

                    Hmmm...nurse..my brother are one,he uses throw away gloves to change the oil in his car,could be on to something

                    I have never relied on dishwashing to clean my hands,mainly because the damn door won't close with my knucles in it
                    I just need one more tool,just one!

                        Just hold them in the stream of a pressure washer WS A light buffing with a wire cup works too and restores a healthy glow to boot.

                        Hoffman - I feel for you dude. Is this a holiday thing or just general health care insanity?

                          SBS Orange. Good stuff. A citrus cleaner with cornmeal instead of pumice so it doesn't eat the skin. Usual disclaimers, but I've used it for years.

                              On hand cleaning, I've tried all kinds of things over the years, Go_Jo, paint thinner, liquid dish detergent, etc. Dirt gets in the cracks in the skin and won't come out. Yes, washing dishes and cleaning bathrooms will take it out, but lately I've gone back to something very old, i.e. powdered BORAXO, and find it is about the best for me short of doing dishes that don't need doing.
