SDRR: Deathfrogg: We had a whole shipment of 2.5" stainless steel bars come into the shop that were contaminated with cobalt-60 and probably some other stuff. We noticed this because we got a foot of snow over a long weekend and everything was covered except them. I showed my boss that shiat and he called the supplier, who then came out with a Geiger counter and then split after telling us not to use it, after I'd already turned a whole bar. The next day a large truck up and two dudes in Rad suits picked it up with their crane and put it on the truck after wrapping it in this heavy cloth shiat, took all the chips in the chip bin and the parts I'd already made. They wanted to take the lathe too but my boss told them to go to hell.I had to go to a doctors office for a year just to see if I showed any traces of exposure, which I hadn't.Where were they sourced from? China?
