Gee I hope nobody steps up and tells horror stories. I've cut an awful lot
of FG over the years and rarely used a mask....

Hell, I can recall when a major composite suppliers actually sold asbestos
fibers as a thickening agent! Fortunately, I never used any of that stuff

Since FIFO doesn't work so well for home renovations, I'm going to
have to cut a shower enclosure in half to remove it. It's made of
fiberglass. How nasty will it get if I use the sawzall? Will the
fibers be big enough to land on the ground in a few minutes or will
there be a microscopic carcinogenic haze throughout the house for a
month? I have a good respirator and shop vac, but no good way to
contain the debris.
