I've only burned myself once in these past 3 years, and it left a verrrry noticeable scar. I reached over my table to grab something, and I felt a sharp burning pain in my forearm. Yeah. It hurt like hell for a while, big blister and everything. :lol:

Other than that stuff like solder splashing, and like bic said, that flux-core solder is brutal when you aren't paying attention. That flux flies all over the place. Even went in my eye once.

I haven't burned myself since I was 11. :P

Even before that, I never did anything major.
Cheers,

I once flicked a wire that had molten solder on it with the tip of the iron and a gob of solder flew right into my open mouth and onto my tongue. It hurt for a second but surprisingly it didn't taste bad.

Didn't that hurt damn unless you eat a lot of super hot atomic peppers on a daily bsis anyways that's a intense burn on your hand... Kind of hesitant to start modding now... When I start soldering for first time this weekend I'm going to get good protecting glasses gloves and some big cargo pants and big long sleeve shirts and such.... Then again I can be getting ahead of myself ill find out soon... Gonna solder my fried n64 mobo. Btw what work space would be recommended? As in big empty room or a big room engulfed In broken open 2.1 jiggawatt voltage wired?

Once I wasn't paying attention and the soldering iron fell onto the laminate floor, burnt a hole in it. I also managed to touch the tip of it, thinking it was cold because I unplugged it. Turns out one of my brother plugged it back in because they thought the dog accidentaly unplugged it and they saw the table full of electronics crap.
