Capacitors tend to explode or shoot in the air under high temperatures, which requires gloves. Because fire was used with a blow torch, gloves should also be recommended incase of fire coming back on hands. Fumes can be extremely hazardous if inhaled for long periods of times, which means a mask of some sort is recommended. Of course, I found the gas and capacitor parts out the hard way...damn I have a headache off smelling that good ole' burning of silicon and plastic! Also, Handle stuff with something OTHER than your hands. It's a blow torch ya stupid ass...it makes things
hot...Don't wanna burn yourself now do ya?
