The solder joint in the tubing. Personally, I don't see a risk but the environmentalists see a risk in any lead at all. The plumbing in my house has ALL lead soldered joints. Now, plumbers are not allowed to use lead type solder. If the water just passes over the lead, there is absolutely minimal chance of problems. Keeping wine in a lead crystal decantor will also leech lead into the drink but, you don't hear all the hype about that. It's all about making the earth green. Toy wagons are being recalled because of lead in the paint. I don't know of ANY kids who ever ATE their wagon.

    No, I don't know of any kids that have eaten their wagon either. However, I can guarantee that there are a lot of kids who have eaten paint chips ffrom anything and everything in their environment! I did when I was a kid (many, many years ago)! In today's world why would any manufacturer still use lead solder in any appliance used for food products? No, one joint in one appliance probably does not create a significant hazard. However, how many other sources are contributing lead into our systems that we aren't aware of? How often do we see warnings on other pieces of Chinese garbage? Lead poisening is a cumulative condition, not the result of one single dose!

Our Keurig keeps kicking off the GFI outlet when turned on. Worked fine yesterday. When the outlet is reset I can hear a click insied the machine. Any help would be great. Thank You Kevin McShera


This is not an exact science. The GFI is trying to trip when it thinks you have a dangerous short. But a powerful device will require a surge when it starts up that is always pretty close to what appears to be a dangerous short. You could switch the GFI out with one rated higher, like 20 amps instead of 15 amps. It would be harder to tell if the Keurig is drawing excessively, because it would only be a transient, for a fraction of a second. You would almost need an oscilloscope to tell what it was doing accurately.
My advice would be to try a surge protector, such as:
http://www.hardwareandtools.com/invt/u720584
The idea being that a surge protector has capacitors in it, to slow down or clip rapid current flow or voltage build up. Which should reduce any eroneous tripping. Basically this one is a plug in version of what you have in the wall, but higher quality and easier to install.

Lead in the coffee maker


It does contain a small amount of lead inside a copper coil located in the electronics of the machine. This part does not come in contact with the water, heater or any other part that would cause lead contamination of your coffee.

This page has a great write up explaining it:

Info. for Model No. MP-CD450 indicates a "Warning: Handling the


Hi there. The majority of electrical apparatus use cords that contain a small quantity of lead.
This metal is dangerous if ingested, and should not be a main concerned if handled, providing that you wash your hands afterward.

I quote what American Cancer Society says:

Many electrical wires and cables have small amounts of lead in their outside insulation (surface covering), which can rub off on the hands of people who touch the wires. People can be exposed to lead by ingesting it, so if they eat or put their hands in their mouths without washing up after handling these wires, they can take in small amounts of lead. The bigger hazard is likely to be to toddlers and babies who put wires in their mouths. Since they crawl around on the floor, it can be challenging to keep them away from wires. How can I avoid exposure (and protect children in the house)?
  • The most important point to avoid exposure is to wash your hands after handling the electrical cords to avoid swallowing any lead that rubs off onto them.
  • Don't eat or feed children while handling lead-containing cords or stringing holiday lights.
  • Since small children are more likely to put cords, fingers, and other objects in their mouths, keep lead-containing wires out of their reach.
  • Children are more affected by lead (see ACS document, Lead), and should always have their hands washed before handling food and eating.

I have black soot on my walls from my baseboard heaters, is this hazardous or dangerous to my health?


same issue years ago. these heaters draw air in from the bottom and push it out the top. so any dirty air (candles burning will do it) is pulled through the heater and pushed out the top causing stains on walls.

Welding Dangerous


Compared to other industrial jobs, welding is fairly dangerous. The occupational and health hazards of welding can be avoided with proper equipment, safe materials, and a few common sense measures. Risks associated with welding include asphyxiation due to dangerous inhalants, skin and eye damage due to ultraviolet light, electrical or chemical fires, and long-term negative effects from fumes. Most people think that sparks and arcs are the most dangerous aspects of welding because they call attention to themselves, but they are only one risk. The brightness of the sparks, with their strong UV light, can cause cancer in unprotected eyes and skin. Yet there is a wide range of equipment, such as auto-darkening helmets and thick gloves, to reduce your exposure. Also, sparks are not usually hot, yet general precautions should be taken to keep wood or other combustible material out of the range of the welder's arc. Setting heated metal on a flammable surface is more likely to start a fire. The leading cause of health problems in welders relates to carcinogenic or toxic chemicals. These chemicals might be in a sealant or coating over the metal surfaces to be welded. Extreme heat releases molecules into the air, where they are easily inhaled. Certain substances might also be embedded in the material itself, like lead, cadmium, manganese, chromium, or nickel in metals like stainless steel, copper, or zinc. These metals should only be welded with extreme caution. Make sure you know exactly what they contain and weld in an area with a lot of air circulation. Symptoms from inhalation can range from a temporary flu-like sickness to major damage to lungs, liver, and other organs. For instance, manganism from manganese exposure is related to Parkinson's Disease. Even when you are careful with regard to sealants and varieties of metals, the process of welding always produces other dangerous gases. For instance, a variation of oxygen called ozone is created with every welding arc. Ozone exists naturally in the atmosphere, but large concentrations of ozone displace oxygen. If you weld in an enclosed space, ordinarily safe gases can become too concentrated and cause edema, filling your lungs with water. Ozone, nitrogen oxide, and carbon dioxide build up, making you pass out, hit your head, or suffer brain damage.
