PSA: Radioactive Steampunk

If you use old watch parts for steampunk projects, you should read this.

Yikes!

Thanks to Diana.

Hey, I got an email from someone after your post went up that I think would be of interest:

"After seeing the radium dial warning from Steampunk, be
aware that the same problem exists with old aircraft instrument dials
and faces, only probably worse because of their size. I used to have a shelf full of those instruments, and it would glow in the dark.....I think jewelers may remove some of those parts when they work on old watches, but commonly the replacement parts are not available, such as
on Accutron watches."
