I don't care how well this gadget is designed and engineered: I am not plugging it into the wall socket then dropping it in my bath water!

I don't understand your reluctance to use a product like this, Paul. It's gotta be cheaper than that electo-shock stuff the sell at the doctor's office.

There's a great ad on page 141: "Make a Tractor from Your Old Car."

That's strange, this product is fairly common around here, only now it's made of plastic. I used it to heat my bathwater all the time right until we decided to get one of those fancy wall mounted water heaters.

The ad is trying a lot harder to sell the *business* rather than the *product*. Reminds me of Amway...

I found an item identical to this in my attic, but made by a different company.After reading the warning label attached to the cord I decided against testing it out.I assume the modern plastic versions are safer. Maybe.
