GrahamB:
Nicely done! And great to see those old pictures. I expect the canister was packed full of healthy asbestos?
Which part did you use to make your canister?

PMatt:
Glad to hear you liked them!

I'm afraid I can't answer your first question, GrahamB – I'm no expert on the subject, just reproduce what I see.
As for the piece, it's an emergency light support: https://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showpart.pl?partnum=30-27-0330

I think charcoal is more likely than asbestos, assuming that the aim is filtering rather than breathing oxygen.  Early BA such as the Proto (https://www.london-fire.gov.uk/museum/history-and-stories/a-brief-history-of-our-breathing-apparatus/) involved a bag on the chest containing air or oxygen with the wearer breathing it in without assistance from any pressurised system.  The use of a filter to remove CO2 allowed some recycling of air.

GrahamB:
Thanks, playmofire. Some (perhaps all) WW2 gas masks contain asbestos, so people today are advised against wearing them.

Macruran:
they should rename it asworstos
