After a very very long hiatus, I am going to start modeling again. I am just about ready (cleaned the workbench, etc), but have a question: about 10 feet away from my workbench is an oil-fueled furnace and hot water heater. I have not modeled yet in this particular basement, even though I have been in the house for about 5 years, so I am wondering about any safety hazards.
I have a small window above my bench which I will crack open for ventilation, but I am concerned about the potential for explosions from glue/paint fumes. Am I over-reacting? I build in 1/72, so I shouldn't have too much paint flying around from the airbrush. I also use liquid cement and the occasional superglues, as well as putty. The basement is very open, so I would not be modeling in a small enclosed space. Just wondering about your opinions, and I thank you in advance.
