metal shavings in skin

Okay metal workers, what is the best way to get these damn shavings out of my skin? It feels like I've rubed fiberglass insulation all over my arms and hands!!!

if the shavings are in your hands, try coating them with a layer of Elmer's Glue. Let it dry, and when you peel it off, the shaving come out with it.

How true that is... Plus if the grinder gets away from you hmmm well lets just say the metal shavings will be the least of your worries...

I like it best when the shavings start poking back at you 3 days later and I lost a few fingernails before I decided to start wearing gloves.

For shavings in your hands get some really strong tape and stick it to the area and pull up. There has been many a time when tweezers where needed cause the shaving was so small!! (insert funny comment here)

If it's Aluminium shavings then you have to make sure you get 'em all out in a hurry. Many years ago I got some under my watch that I didn't notice. The next day when I woke up my hand was that swollen that the skin around my finger nails was starting to split. The doctor told me that the body reacts to Aluminium very quickly.

zee medical supply has tweezers with points like needles and a magnifing glass built onto it. drag a pair of your old ladies nylons over where you think it might be, they'll snag on the filings. half the battle is just finding the damn things, then dig
