Tell me about it Damien..I keep catching it on pockets, doing the washing up this morning was...interesting, to say the least! I guess I'll have to be a big brave soldier and battle on through the pain barrier (sympathy please....)  :D

ooh...big ouch! I reckon that all prospective modellers should be issued with a form declaring that modelling can be dangerous to your health as well as your wealth....

Rich,

I am afraid that hot water coming into contact with a burn is absolutely taboo. It will never heal if you keep immersing it like that.....So....I am sorry to say, that "No more washing up for you till it is healed!!

Picking the iron up with the wrong end teaches the need for respect and observation as well.

Dont tell the manufacturer, they will sue you for mis-use of their product... bringing their firm in to disrepute (sp).. and quite a lot of mental anguish...

You expected sympathy?...

Hang on... this sounds rather familiar...  ;D

You will soon WANT to let go.  It might decide not to.

Stavros - there isn't usually very much gore involved.  Cauterisation happens, with a smell of roast pork.  And a sort of yodelling sound effect.

An old colleague from BT was working down a manhole doing some cable work which required some soldering and shouted up to the lad above that he was ready for the soldering iron.   It was duly passed down to him but he didn't look up and he took hold of it hot end first.   Can you imagine the language, the smell and the pain.    I can almost hear the sizzling.
