I don't do the tyvek suit and all that bs.

I mixed asbestos cement with water by hand as a youngster and don't have ling problems, yet.
I would do that too. Or at least I would in theory, if I am not making much mess I might just do like Clinton and not inhale.

I am not recommending this for anyone else but I am not very afraid of asbestos in SMALL DOSES, IMO it's heavy long term exposure that gets you, I believe that much of the special handling you see is way way over the top.

I think so too.

Agreed, handling it like nuclear material is beyond reason.

I've seen the same type panel in relatives homes in Scotland. Some are enclosed in nice hardwood cabinetry.
