Hi Dave,

	Then, I hope, an oil rated fire extinquisher is handy.

	A little planning goes a LONG way, in keeping us safe,
	and out of the emergency room.

	Preplanning beats the heck out of a first aid kit.
	(hint: I do display fireworks.  We plan, think, plan,
	and stay aware to stay safe.)  How many here have thought
	about the fire risk?  How many have seen an oil

I was a fire extinguisher maintenance technician for a couple years.  I've
seen many different kinds of fires, even metal fires.  Safety is the name of
the game.  That's why I built my jacketed coil with transformer oil.  It's
made just for this purpose.  And yes, I have a fully charged ABC fire
extinguisher within 8 feet of my test area.  When I can afford it, I'm going
to get halon.  I dread having to use a powder extinguisher in a room full of
test equipment.
