Subject: [CR]Cottered Crank Safety

There was a thread a short time ago on cranks rupturing. I do a fair bit of riding on some vintage British cottered cranks and I'd like to know if there are any safety issues in using them.

Are cottered cranks inherently weaker or stronger than cottered cranks?

Does the fact that some I ride on are 50 years old pose a problem?
