Thanks for the warning. I use it in the kitchen, and heard it could be useful
for water spots on wood.
I have never used it in the shop other wise

Scott,

Be cautious with Barkeepers Friend (BKF). It contains Oxalic Acid, which in
small amounts can trigger kidney stones and in larger amounts is an irreversible
kidney poison.

The dust can injure your corneas, although I think that is reversible.

BTW: I use Barkeeper’s Friend frequently!

Best and Most Repectful Regards,
John Ruth
