Wanted to warn everybody, this week, there was an explosion at JR Motorsports in Cedar Rapids Iowa. What happened was a customer of theirs had brought in a used fuel cell to have a new metal can fabbed for it and apparently the cell had a little gas or fumes left in it, and when another employee there was running a chop saw, the sparks touched off a huge explosion. My friend was in their office at the time and just got his ears rung..real bad and a couple other guys in the shop area got injured slightly i guess, but it sounds as if they were extremely lucky, and they were able to put out the fire without too much damage.
