    Yeah but where's all the fun with the messy plaster? time spent in an orthotic work room can be quite therapeutic...
    :eek:)
     
  3. Not when you are churning out 25 pairs a day it ain't:mad:.

    Although the smell of glue does repell management somewhat:wacko:

    Hi Adrian,
    It's nice to see it rubbed off on someone...but after 10 yrs of it and the last 15 months doing more workshop time than ever I am getting a bit tired of it....and increasingly concerned about the health issues of glue and dust exposure, I am upgrading to fume cupboards etc, rather than just normal dust extraction hosing....it's not that hard to do if you build them yourself.....you must watch you're long term toluene and dust exposure....
    regards
    Phill Carter

    "....I'd love to spend a whole day a week just churing out orthoses in the lab... !"

    Having done it for more than a few days a week it is amazing to look back and see how much life has past you by while stuck in the glue cupboard. :dizzy:

    It was a worthwhile experience in many ways but not one to give so much time too these days... especially if you have family and sunshine and an already full clinic.

    Or-Tec glue is toluene free and is a glue I've been very happy with. I won't say it is non toxic but at least it doesn't have the evil T in it.
