Turns out I gave myself zinc poisoning for like 7 months. So, lesson learned to not heat galvanized steel. Which sucks, because it really gives a cool effect, but I'd rather not spend 7 months of my life wondering why I have no strength and can't stop coughing and constantly falling over from dizziness and nausea.
What stupid mistakes have you learned from your DIY stuff? I figure it's better to learn from them and help someone else not make the same mistake.
