    Thumbs down battery=1 me=0

    There is no way in hell I'm going to make Mead this weekend , I was shrinking some heat wrap on some wires, I guess the heat gun is hotter than I thought. Motherfukcer!!!!!On my way to the ER to get the acid out of my eyes and the gash on my forehead looked at, BTW my head was about 6" from the battery when this happened. Yes the battery was disconnected, no I wasn't charging it.

    It sucks now but you will be fine.

    I had that happen to me also. Never check to see if the points are firing if the battery is right next to the points!

    Hydrogen is a muthafuka isn't it?

    Hope you're ok.

    More than likely a spark from the heat gun did it vs plain old heat.

    HAHA, funny you should ask, as I'm stumbling around from the shrapnel and shellshock, the first thing I thought of was "shit, I need a rag & some cleaner before this shit fucks up the boat" I doused the boat with some windex and rinsed out my eyes then I cleaned up the boat good, other than a little bit of discolor on my coil, it's all good..............
