I want to put two cents in on wearing a dust mask while working with bone. I was putting a new nut in my Regal Dobro to raise the action up a notch, and for about 95% of the work I remembered to wear a mask. when I was trying to put the nut in, I realized that the Koreans at Saga had made the nut slot crooked. I filed the nut so it would fit in, but forgot to put the mask back on. I guess I breathed some bone dust - because my throat wasn't feeling good at all the next few days... That stuff's bad news...
