RE: Breathers (was Microchatter chit chat)
I am proud to admit I am a 'breather' to!!! I think it makes all the
difference in the world and agree with the thought on static electricity. I
am to the point that I breath on every block. Why wait till you are
struguling - breath on it to start!
I also agree most blocks should be soaked on ice water before cutting. I
know of some who dont and their slides show it.
To the person who comented on is "breather' age related, I hope not I am
not that old yet!!!
