But I am not going to treat Lipo's like they are Nitro Glycerin or TNT. Am I carefull, and monitor/check my packs allways. Yes I do/am. When I go to work fro 3 weeks, my extra packs are all stored in my Powdercoat oven, just in case too.

One of the last people hurt by a lipo blowing up this year was Curtis Youngblood.
Maybe he didn't know what he was doing?

Lipos burn or blow up sometimes.That's inevitable.
It will happen today somewhere and it will happen to a pro again soon.

They aren't all ticking time bombs but they all have the potential to be.
