    Ya kinda get an eye for which are honey horn, and those that aren't. Before sanding them down. How good they are is yet to surface, is the bad part.

    I prefer speckled and striped horn over others. There was a thread about the old method for making them black. Photo developing chemicals was the main thing used to get the deep black.

    Yeah, there were some pretty negative (get the pun?) things used with all the processes back in those days. Sanding should never be done without proper ventilation and a mask/respirator.

    If you only knew what went into the production of most any products from that era you might not want to even handle them.

    Also the boxes. Mercury, iodine among other elements and compoundswere used for dying, gluing, pressing.

    Don't snort it or eat it. I imagine you'd be just fine. I've handled lead for some time, now. No adverse effects of yet. Even got a strop pasted in lead.

    Your probably more at danger from the additives they put in our food.

    Depends. I said the same thing for decades. All the solvents and penetrants and the old metals including lead and of course, asbestos...then I got cancer. When it came to causes??? Any one of a number of those things or something else entirety could have been it.

    It's true that being occasionally exposed doesn't mean it will kill you but once you have body parts removed it makes you a little less......cavalier maybe?

    I'm not one to wear bubble wrap or try to rubberize the world but, no sense in increasing you risk when a mask is easy.

    Yeah buddy.!! I did a few with no suit, had to throw all my clothes away cause of all the glass that was embedded in them.

    At least they were rags for the most part.
    But I still have my full face respirator, and we should still have the paper suits to wear. So it won't be so bad. At least it's not summer time.

    I spent a career in Tyveks, double cotton coveralls, and full and half mask respirators in the nuke industry. The Tyveks were worse because they didn’t breathe.

    Might want to consider an air line suit, yuk yuk. Full disclosure, these were not much if any more comfortable.
