    Thanks for the tip Mary! Always good to have a reminder. And for reaching out to those that are less than 30 years old.

    Need to be careful using these insulators. Make sure that you use ones that are UL approved and not flammable. If device sparks it has the possibility of catching the insulation on fire.
