Subject:
slightly OT Swollen Joints

Barry Irby
>I have posted a number of times about my misadventures with Watco Danish Oil. I think I have beaten that problem. I also noticed that when I finished with the polyurethane and mineral spirits thinner, my knuckles were swollen. I wear a college ring on my right hand and I could not get it back on. I usually take it off in the shop. The next morning I got it back on and tonight it appears to be its normal slightly loose self.

I'm trying to figure out if I have arthritis of some type or if I am allergic to urethane and the thinner. Any suggestions? Is the swelling just from using my hands or a reaction to the stuff?
