Cheers Phillip. What are pcb's? Are they something dodgy?

Switchgear oil in the foundry probably had PCB's in it in the 70's, we would change it during the summer shutdown then filter it into milk bottles. On the first day back there would be a line of Indian foundry workers waiting to buy it as they used it on their skin to keep it soft
