    By some accounts the original bakelite was up to half asbestos (which kind?
    WHite or blue?). I saw online some electrical outlets made of bakelite, and I
    was wondering if it really is bakelite, and if so if there is a new bakelite
    without asbestos? ANy clues?

    The wikipedia article should answer the OPs questions, but I can tell
    you that machining phenolics is an easy way to produce snortable powder.
    Covers the every square inch of the entire shop with a very fine dust.

    Only worry if it's fluffy bakelite.

    Google *IS* the problem, don't trust it. Look online and all you see is
    trial lawyers saying all bakelite has asbestos. It doesn't. Bakelite can be
    made into a composite by mixing it with glass, slate or asbestos.
