I'd second that. Avoid airborne dust! Even if inert, it clogs lungs. And if it's not, it could be serious. I heard of a vacuum cleaner demonstrator who had a dust bag burst on him. He was hospitalised.

And the dust in an old radio is just the same as vacuum cleaner dust. Not worth making it airborne and breathing in. We have only two lungs, and neither can be replaced.
