Hi, I am new to this list, and am seeking
I am searching for the names of companies that made and distributed
jewelry making and metalsmithing products that used to contain
asbestos. I keep reading that lots of people on the list “used to
keep a bucket of asbestos under the bench,” used to used "asbestos
soldering boards and pads, " used to use “asbestos based investment
for casting”, “used to use asbestos slurry,” “used to use kilns that
were lined with asbestos.” etc.
I’m looking for company and product names and or copies of old
catalogs that have the names of asbestos based products. I would
even pay for old catalogs that listed asbestos based jewelry and
metalsmithing products. The catalogs would probably be pre-1978, and
so probably not very many of them will have survived.
If catalogs aren’t available, I would be happy with a few names that
some of you may have remembered.
