Tip #9 First Aid Tip
A few days ago I picked a picked up a piece that was still hot. Ouch. I put my hand in the water to quench it- this really helps because it stops the heat right away, otherwise it's like a piece of metal that has to air cool. It keeps on burning, which means more damage to your skin. Usually when you pick up hot metal there's a blister which means a 2nd degree burn, but if you get water on it right away you can avoid that, and, if you're lucky, keep working!
