Warning & Safety Reminder

Additional specific information must be obtained from other sources including the latest editions of American Society of Mechanical Engineers; Standard A.N.S.I. B15.1. A copy of this standard may be obtained from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers at 345 East 47th Street New York, NY 10017 (212705-7722).
