Proposition 65

Proposition 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was initiated in California. These warnings inform Californians about significant exposures to chemicals known to cause cancer or toxicity. Proposition 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list, which must be updated at least once a year, has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals. 

Products most likely to require Proposition 65 warnings include brass items, finishing products, or items made of PVC. The state of California's advice regarding safe handling of most of these products is to wash your hands after handling. For more information about Proposition 65, please refer to the following website: http://www.oehha.ca.gov/prop65.html

Your safety is important to us. In compliance with Proposition 65, we provide consumer warnings on any item that we sell that may be made with materials (whole or in part) that may contain a toxin that exceeds a safe threshold of toxicity, causing cancer and/or reproductive harm. Since most of our tools are used to work raw wood, which may generate wood dust, we have begun providing adequate Proposition 65 warnings on most of our items. The following warning will be included on specific product web pages and included with all orders shipped to the state of California:

Note: Even if you may not come in contact with or touch one component of the tools (rivets, knobs, handles, and other parts), we are still required to provide adequate consumer warning. To protect against exposure consider wearing gloves and/or wash hands after use. If you have specific questions regarding tools with this warning and about which specific component may contain a toxin, please contact us at (573)-397-6432 for more information.
