Interesting. Silicon Carbide paper? For the most part I only use Aluminum Oxide. If I'm wet sanding I'll use SC paper.

The worst part about all of this is the unknown. You get a cough or a mild fever and you're supposed to stay home for 2 weeks and have no clue if you had it or not... we got sick and self isolated meanwhile have no clue if we are immune or not

Thanks. I'm not worried about us. Young and healthy, and we like staying home anyway. Lots of projects, garden stuff, etc to do and I can do most of my business from the office. We've always been well prepared.

But odds are she didn't catch it. You definitely take precautions when you KNOW you're working with someone who has it.

I've been paranoid of escalator railings for years. I try not to touch them, I figure one day that effing thing will break down and I'll end up getting tossed on my face.

But it's worth the risk.
