My fingers are killing me. I've spent the last 3 hour in my basement studio fusing fine silver rings together on bracelets and earrings. I love being able to use the torch without the fuss of solder. The fine silver just melts and fuses together. I am getting pretty good to this, but my fingers still hurt from opening and closing rings and trying to get them to fit together just right. Plus I did a lot of cleaning up my PMC fresh from the kiln with a brass brush. It's not exactly easy on the hands. Oh well, I gave up on manicures years ago.
