I always try to saw Cedar with the wind to my back. Otherwise I wear a face mask. I don't seem to have any allergy issues with WRC but I will sometimes get a rash when I mix sweat and cedar dust. It only lasts a few hours after I quit sawing.

The worst is sawing with a dust mask on a hot day. I end up with a rash around the edges of the mask :(.

I have a contractor friend who cannot work with WRC any more. It leaves him short of breath and wheezing for days. His hands and forearms break out in terrible sores, even when he wears gloves and long sleeves.

I There was lots of falldown lumber as well for local sales but this load was preemo, worth close to $70,000 Canadian.

 (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

What is falldown lumber?
Sorry, everyone has their own lingo these days....What I call falldown is lower grade stuff from the same cut(whack o logs):D that isnt worthy of this particular load...Fencing etc....It was very nice "falldown" as the broker whjo buys this from us is way fussy....

Thanks Percy for the explanation.
