Had mine yesterday morning (jab not feathers), starting coughing last night. It lasted about an hour until a Fisherman's Friend took care of it. Must have been the vaccination - can't have anything to do with an afternoon of woodwork.
I have the mental list of various wood dust effects upon my person, particularly the panters, nozzle-ways and other organs gathering & processing the oxygen. These days I become paranoid if the slightest of any of these symptoms appears, despite the 3HP dust sucker and large through-draft I induce in the woodworking places.

Iroko and American white oak are nasty to me, as is teak but also some of the queer softwoods used in various blockboards (or is it the nasty glues in there). As for MDF .... I reject it in all its forms, along with chipboard, particle board and various others that rely on gallons of glue to stay together.
