No, I almost got into enough trouble doing metal extraction in the junkyard days....and then there's the toxic element.

The problem is always what to do with the leftovers...and what the feds will do to you if that's not "just so".

Thanks for posting that though. Always interesting to see what's up.

I was trying to add a copy of the effects on the body as a warning about the danger of Cad but I think everyone knows it.
I forgot about your Feds. I dont have to worry about that as yet but its coming soon.
The prices of chemicals keep going up. Recycling is the answer except when the chemicals get into the glass they wont come out.

Actually, sealing nasty stuff up in glass is getting more and more popular.

Back in the 1990s in Seattle there was a guy on the road to the glass recycling yard south of the city who pioneered it. I think they were looking at how to clean up Hanford (radioactive mess from WW2 bomb work)
