I believe it has been banned now but I do remember a bunch of machine tool fitters who worked with us and used it often were definitely all a bit nuts and most people did put that down o long periods of cleaning machines with trike!

Jesus wept..lighten up..

We all joke, tell lies and generally fuck about on this forum..

we are all grown ups and know not to drink trike, meths and petrol unless we run out of real booze, we also know not do weld without goggles..

One was speaking from experience of using the aforesaid Trichloroethylene when cleaning printing machinery. Had to tie a piece of rope to me ankle so the lads could pull me back down to earth and I thought I had only used a little bit on a cloth, was well ventilated area too. By eck that stuff is potent. There are other products that claim to do the same as trike, but I have yet to find a better degreasing agent.
