Asbestos and Antique Radios


Caution!  Some radios use sheets of friable asbestos under or above the chassis.    Breathing asbestos fibers can cause various lung diseases such as asbestosis and lung cancer.  Never use  compressed air near asbestos.  Compressed air will cause the asbestos to become airborne.  If your radio contains asbestos, consult OSHA guidlines for safe removal.
