An Important message about a steamer that blew up like a terrorist
A jeweler asked me to send this toy my list to apprise jewelers of a
potential problem with a steamer:
We had an explosion in our shop with a steam cleaner. The steam
cleaner was not being used at the time. None of the safety devices
worked. I was in the room at a computer and one of our staff was also
in the room on her way out of the room when the blast happened.
We were both lucky that neither of us were killed or badly injured.
The damage caused was unbelievable, this was a bomb. The entire
building moved, the glass in the window blew out on to the street 3
floors below. The entire polishing room was destroyed along with
adjoining rooms having substantial damage.
The piece of equipment that I am referring to is called a
Steamstress. We have contacted as many people as we know to advise
them if they have this machine they need to get rid of it. When my
husband called to order a new steam machine and told them what
happened to us he was told that we were the 3rd explosion in Canada
with that same machine. There was one in Montreal and one in Toronto.
I have attached photos of the room where we were in, and a photo of
our spare steamer that was the same model as the one that exploded
along side of the remains of the exploded steamer.
I want the word to get out there so this does not happen to anyone
