Brake cleaner and welding can kill you

Just came across this. If you ever weld or know somebody that welds, please read it.

Thanks for the heads up. I learned a few years ago to never use brake cleaner like you would carb cleaner. With a runnig bike I was out of carb cleaner and spritzed brake cleaner into the carbs to clean out some residue and junk. Just a small amount made a huge cloud that smelled terrible and burned when I got a whiff of it. I was upwind of it so only got a little, but I didn't feel good, especially my lungs, for a day or two. I now avoid any use of brake clean that involves it burning.
