before you get too excited - the effects of asbestos can take 20-30 years to take hold and kill you. It doesn't mean people are been exposed at that rate now, nor that in 20 years you'll have lung cancer! These things are very historical.

:D

Thanks Apache, yes I know that, I just read that report in the Elect.Safety Council magazine and thought I would pass it on . Remember my first post about old fuseboards, we all mess with them now and then. Remember too that I see it from a different perspective from some of you guys. You are talking to someone who bought Elvis's first record when it was in the hit parade and cars still had starting handles .

Hi Deke

My car has a starting handle !!!!! and its old like me !!

You are so right about asbestos,there are still loads of sites,and equipment

that have asbestos in them or in it,I came upon a situation a couple of months ago where I found a burst "LAGGING"around a pipe in a celler of an office.

I took a sample to the analist where it was found to be dangerous(I never can remember wether its blue or white)

Next minute the specialists were in removing it.!!!! ; \

cheers sparky

An 'analist' is a specialist doctor. Like a navel surgeon.................. ;)
