i've just been filing some bone down to make a bearing block for a bow drill and i've noticed that the dust seems to really make me sneeze. i was wondering, is the dust from bone at all dangerous?
am i allergic (it does have that hay-fever tickle about it) or is it just an irritant?
i remember a while ago some poor unfortunate drum maker caught anthrax from some hides, could bone do the same thing?
the bone i'm working is a dog bone.....erm......that's as in from a pet shop for my dog to chew on, not from a moonlight raid to my local pet cemetary, thought i should probably clear that up straight away.
