    great pics, as an advocate of safety awareness for MMA-Methyl Methacrylate. I recommend wearing 8mm nile gloves ALWAYS. MMA can seap through your skin. vaseline or latex, or those protective hand sprays are not enough. MMA can cause many illnesses. Damage to CNS and more, I have experienced first hand as a prominent TMJ Tech for over 25 years, now can not be exposed to MMA even under mild conditions.
