    During my lead guy's first week, [when he was a helper] the guys were tearing out an oooold furnace. One of the guys said "Jack, do you know Travis doesn't like asbestos?" I thought Oh-no, he'll quit so I asked him why and he said.....




    "Hell no I don't like asbestos, I like pussy bestest!"

    One other thing to note typically asbestos tape on duct work is usally easy to identify:

    1 it will be thicker than regular duct tape almost 1/8 of an inch if I remember correctly it will be white in colour or cream. This is what I remember I also recall that it was used on older homes pre 70's for sure pre 65 possibly

    It could be that we Canadians are smarter and stopped using the stuff on our Igloo's before you Yanks did

    A litle asbestos tape on ducting is nothing to get too excited about if at all concerned follow local codes for removal and you should be OK

    the jokes killed me
    www.vetopropac.com - The best tool bags on the market - The offical tool bag of choice by techs everywhere

    Arguing with some people is like wrestling a pig - eventually you realise the pig actually enjoys it

    Gonads serve a useful purpose but are no substitute for brains

    It's so cold up there I wouldn't think there'd be any need for asbestos!

    People in southern Texas wear it for underwear.

    If you want to be sure have a sample tested.
    Take your time & do it right!

    if it isnt disturbed, why is it an issue? Let a sleeping dog lay.

    If it aint broke, dont fix it.

    No one has used asbestos in tape for at least 35 years or so, north or south. If the house is indeed only 15 years old, it ain't the big A.

    Asbestos was first mined in Canada and if I remember correctly,
    the guy who discovered its value died from exposure to it.
    As for underwear. When I worked in a shipyard I was skinny
    enough to get inside the "rudder horn" and weld it while
    it was kept at 350 degrees with strip heaters.
    They would give me a couple asbestos
    blankets that I would wrap around me as I crawled in and worked for about 8-10 minutes. Gee I wonder how thats going
    to play out long term?

    We used asbestos tape up to the late 70's. I don't know if you need aremoval co. or not.
