Default Lead testing kit

I wanted to make sure the rhinestone sliders I use are safe. I purchased a kit that comes w several testing ampules. So I tested all my sliders & made sure the tests were accurate using the little control lead strips. Just to make sure the kit worked I used 1 of my husbands lead fishing weights and WOW did that sucker turn pink, it even tinted the weight pink! So I thought I would share this info w any other paranoid bow makers who want to make sure their products are safe

Unless they have changed the law, it has to be a 3rd party.

Good point! Great idea. Thanks. Any particular brand that you bought? I see a few out there.

A 3rd party *lab*, right? Otherwise I could just have my neighbor test stuff for me with a home kit. I was actually wondering about talking to the local high school science teacher about having the kids test some of my supplies as a class project. Ha!

Interesting. I thought those lead test things were kind of expensive? Can you link to the one you bought? Thanks.

It's not about the products having lead, it's about them having too much lead so you'd need to know how many ppm they contain.

I never mentioned or meant to have anyone think the test kits were a substitute to any new laws and testing requirements.

I in no way was even thinking about the new laws when I bought this kit. I wanted to know if the sliders were safe so I would know whether to even bother buying them or not. The indicator only turns pink if the item being tested is positive for a lead level amount that exceeds the standards set by the government. Go to amazon.com type in lead test kit and look for the kit. I paid $20 and got 10 testers.
