red tube testor's

hey, what's all the winey bitch shit about red tube testor's? i bought a tube
at hobbytown in vegas today..it has warnings about tuolene, etc. looks like
essentially the same from the 60's except for the warning.the 60's is more
like bragging.
i accidently didn't get vented enough while doing much work and it felt the
same. i saw god and jeebus playing dots and asked to get winner.
what's the big deal?

Its a wonder us old dinosaurs can still do this hobby with all the fumes we took in (not to mention rolling down the car window to smell the ethyl fumes when dad filled up the gas tank) what you youngsters missed !

...lessee...gasoline, sulfuric acid, asbestos, toluene, lacquer thinner, butyrate dope, high voltage, ionizing radiation, laser energy, liquid nitrogen, pointed sticks...yeah...dem was da daze...

when i worked as a courier. we had mit labs for customers. i shudder to think what i carried. i know on many occasions we had 5 GALLON cubes of various cryocyana stuff. 5 gallons of sooper glue! we also did organs from logan to the hospital. ever had a package crack and had an eye roll on the seat. "they said to just carefully put it back in the box, ok?" i bought a set of chopsticks.

Gross...glad I hadn't eaten lunch yet. Reminds me of 8th grade science class. Teacher brought in a cows eyes to dissect. A couple of the kids crowded around real close. As soon as he poked a scalpel in it, purple gunk squirted all over them...I was glad I stayed in the back of the class lol So...did you keep those chopsticks? ;)

they're great for picking up tiny pieces. and holding them while painting. makes it easy to move the peice around to get all of it.

now i have to find one. i think they were on the reissue list. has anyone besides me bought any lindberg reissues? they are doing a good variety, so any collector should be able to find something.
