    1. Get the proper fire extinguisher !!!!! (type C, I think, not sure)
    2. Use a band saw
    3. DO NOT LET FILINGS PILE UP-- magnesium dust is highly flammable, and difficult to extinguish :yikes:
    4. If you have a fire, DO NOT USE WATER, it will make the fire worse :yikes:
    5. Search the internet for the safety precautions, this stuff can be deadly! :1zhelp:

    Yep magnesium is fun, I really don't know why everyone makes such a fuss over it.
