I complain about mistakes people at my work make a lot, but that doesn’t stop me from doing stupid things do. This being a pretty spectacular case in point. The old drying cabinet in one lab was built in the pre-health and safety days, so when it’s turned up to full, it gets VERY HOT. I didn’t even know it had a temperature control, and didn’t bother to look, I just turned it on and left it… some other people in the lab fortunately smelled nasty smoke in time, and turned it down, but by then the damage was done:
Enjoy these mini-“galleries” while you can. The “upgrade” my comic blog has suffered makes them far more difficult and annoying to create.
Still, I had a go at salvaging un-damaged tips (there was quite a few) and putting them in new boxes.
No idea what will happen to the stuff that’s melted into the cabinet itself. I suppose that will ‘crisp up’ in time and crumble into dust.
