Hey Tom and all,

Well, looking on the label of the bottle of Q-Dope made by CG
Electronics that I have here, it's contents are: Methyl Ethyl Ketone
(78-93-3), Polystrene Resin (N/E) . MEK is a pretty nasty chemical, so
there may be more than one variety of this product. Not familiar with
Toluene, but I'm sure it's just as nasty. We used to use MEK to clean
speaker baskets before reconing. Too bad it's so bad for you (goes right
to the kidneys and lives there I believe), as it was one of the best
solvents I've ever used. Heck this stuff sounds a bit like mixing
styrofoam and gasoline!
