Beatties in Brum sold SPI and AH games*. It also featured the most miserable assistant ever on its model railway counter. *So did GW a few doors down. The 80s were truly a golden age 🙂

You could buy a litre and bequeath it to your grandchildren?

If you use a lot of MEK without the correct PPE your grandchildren won’t have long to wait 🙂

You’ll be telling me not to use carbon tetrachloride* to clean rails next. Health and safety gone mad! *(Don’t use carbon tet, even if you can get it, and for ****’s sake don’t smoke near any of these chemicals – MEK is very volatile and carbon tet has a nasty habit of turning to phosgene when near fire – as when inhaled through a burning cigarette!).

 

Long before I entered it, my industry used carbon tet fire suppression systems. What fun.

Not that the later fire suppression systems – CO2, halon, were any less lethal 🙂
