Sorry for the click-baity title. I didn’t know how else to phrase it.
Have any of you ever had any concerns about the possibility of lead chemicals being used in our vintage tools? I’m a fervent post-workshop hand washer, but from the metals we use to the finishes on the handles, I’m concerned (likely unnecessarily so) that I’m exposing myself and my family to lead poisoning. We’ll be welcoming a little one in a couple of weeks, so Father Mode is kicking in big time — hence this post.
I’ve been loving my adventures with woodworking this past 16 months, but this is the only thing that’s been gnawing at me about this new turn in my life. I can’t seem to find any insight online about vintage tools specifically, but maybe I should take that as a good sign.
Any insight or reassurances would be much appreciated. Thanks!
