fyi - xrays emit fumes that can be hazardous to your health, according to the radiologists i worked with. this was a few years ago so the composition of the film paper (mri, ct, xrays are all printed on same paper) may have changed but i just wanted you to be aware of that. plus the films contain trace amounts of silver which can be dangerous to touch as well, but that could just be in large amounts?  anyway, awesome lamp!
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:X-rays or MRI's on: April 22, 2004 07:05:41 PM
from working at the hospital, i asked several of the radiologists if the old xray/mris/ct scans would make good lamp shades, unfortunalty they dont. they tend to melt under heat, and also release toxicness and contain mercury. it could be done if the lamp was just for show, you could put a low watt lightbulb in and just not turn it on for any length of time, i would say an hour at the very very very very most and even that might be pushing it. wish i could be of more help, but let me know if you come up with anything as i have quite a few of them. maybe you could decorate them and hang them in the window??
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Old light bulbs on: April 20, 2004 11:08:32 AM
I have this inability to throw away burnt out light bulbs. i was thinking of making them into vases and hanging them in the window, but I can't figure out how to get the metal part off the glass. Anyone have any clues? I've tried pliers but I was nervous to use to much pressure (didnt want to glass to break) Does anyone also know if its dangerous to open up old lightbulbs? I wouldnt think so but, never hurts to be careful. Any ideas or suggestions would be very much appreciated Smiley
