    Hi, All –

    I’m working on an Ingersoll Type-R alarm clock with a Radiolite dial and I can’t tell that this radium paint glows at all anymore. Am I going to die from handling it anyway?

    I have a few other radium dial clocks and watches that do still glow and I’m curious how scared I should be about handling them. Already inhaled dust from a WWI German pocket watch dial so I’m likely a goner anyway. 😆

    Thanks for your help!

    Ha, yeah, that’s what I figured. :ugeek:

    Tools: I have a box of toothpicks, a can of WD-40, a screwdriver and a 10lb sledge. That’s good for working on pocket watches, right?

    (Sorry about the monster pic, I’ll make images smaller in future)
