I had the samething happen to me, I didnt get as bad as he did but it will burn the heck out of your nose and lungs.The brake cleaner I used was CRC, big no no when heated. I never us anything but minerial sprits and simple green. And mineral sprits maybe just as bad :shrug:

I'm no chemist but I try to read everything I can about safety with this type of thing. We occasionally have to weld on our spray rigs and respirators and fans are mandatory as per my shop rules. I always have the Techs pressure wash the area first.These machines have fungicide, herbicide, insecticide, growth regulators, fertilizer, and who knows what else on them. From what I've read, some of these compounds can change their form when heated and go from very bad to much worse.
