Does anyone know of a good illustrated guide to inspecting lab glassware for potential safety concerns? I‰??ve seen a fair amount of advice on the web that says "inspect glassware before using‰?? but I‰??d like to have some examples of things to look for. Also, are there specific locations on different types of glassware that should be examined more carefully than others?

Thanks for any help with this.
