Most definitely. Thanks for mentioning it, Jehan Yves. It's something
ingrained into my head, after losing a smith to zinc poisoning last
year, but I don't always think to mention it unless the topic of
galvanized comes up specificly. I automaticly only use plain sheet or
plate, but it's easy to forget that other people might not know about
zinc poisoning.

Gunthar, as a suggestion, if you decide to have something done for
you, leave the details up to the smith, but if you decide to do
something yourself regarding metal, please discuss it with me or
another experienced smith before you apply heat to metal. I can tell
you what's safe and what isn't.
