What does "N.O.S." stand for? I've searched here, but the search engine apparently DISCARDS 3-letter words, so it picked up every thread containing the word "welding"! I've also tried WikiPedia, but it's not there. Google found one explanation from 4 years ago that doesn't make sense.
Anybody know FOR CERTAIN, preferrably with some documentation?

(Not Otherwise Specified): used as the last qualifier in the definition of a class or category, as a punctuation period that restricts further narrowing of that specification, such as in the UN number for the transportation of dangerous goods; e.g., UN1956 is defined as "Compressed Gas, N.O.S."; whether it is flammable or inert is not specified, so it could be either.
