all of which constitute an agreement between you and MariTool Inc. The unenforceability of any one of the Terms and
Conditions shall not affect the enforceability of any of the other Terms and Conditions. The terms and conditions on
any quotation, order acknowledgment, invoice or other form you receive from MariTool Inc. are incorporated into
these Terms and Conditions by reference. These Terms and Conditions constitute the exclusive agreement between you
and MariTool Inc., except as otherwise agreed in writing signed by us. Our failure to assert a right or insist upon

Limitation of Liability
Under no circumstances shall MariTool Inc. be liable in contract, warranty, tort or otherwise for any special,
exemplary, incidental or consequential damages that result from your purchase of any products from MariTool Inc. or
any use of or the inability to use any content or products from MariTool Inc. In no event shall our liablity
exceed the purchase price of the products you purchase from MariTool Inc. It is the users
responsibility to inspect all products to determine if they are per specification required by you the end user.
Limitation of Functional Lifespan
It is understood by you the end user that cutting tools, retention knobs, tool holders, collets and inspection
equipment have limited functional lifespans. It is your responsibility (the user) to determine the products proper
functional lifespan and to put out of service and rebuild or dispose of properly. In no way shall MariTool Inc. be
liable for damage to equipment, personnel or death for products used past its functional lifespan. In no way shall
MariTool Inc. be liable for machinery down time, property damage, product damage, inventory damage or any other
charges incurred to you the user for products used past its functional lifespan.
By its nature cutting tools are dangerous and can be unpredictable. Cutting tools can break and shatter with great
force. While cutting tools are used they can release chips, swarf, dust, sparks, fire and gases. It is the users
responsibility to determine proper and safe protection from said cutting tool. Eye protection, machine guarding,
ventilation equipment, fire protection and other misc safeguards must always be used effectively and must be
maintained and tested. In no way shall MariTool Inc. be liable for any costs, machine down time, injuries, or deaths
resulting from a cutting tools breakage or emissions.
All tool holders have a limited lifespan and require maintenance. Proper cleaning and oiling is important. Tool holder inspection should be a part of your setup routine. During inspection all surfaces should be checked for dents, scratches, cracks, rust, wear or burrs. Any of these imperfections may damage your machine and or create an unsafe condition. Heat shrink tool holders may be very hot during tool changes and great care must be taken while the tool holder is hot to avoid fire and injury. If uncertain of a tool holder condition we recommend you contact MariTool before using the tool in your machine.
Retention knobs (also called pull studs) are stressed components used to clamp the tool holder to its machine tool
counterpart. It is the users responsibility to confirm that the retention knob (pull stud) purchased from MariTool
Inc. is the correct shape, size and specification recommended by the machine tool builder. MariTool Inc. has no way
of knowing your particular machine's spindle options, tool changer layout and drawbar pressure. In no way shall
MariTool Inc. be liable for any costs, machine down time, injuries or deaths resulting from a retention knob
breaking or improperly holding a tool holder in the machine tool.
MariTool Inc. may recommend by phone or email a retention knob part number if you are unsure of which to purchase.
Our database of machine tools and corresponding retention knobs are derived from customer feedback, details from
machine tool dealers, websites, technical publications and other sources. Although MariTool Inc. does its best to
determine accuracy, our database is not always accurate with its recommendations. Even when a retention knob is
recommended by MariTool Inc. it is still your (the user) responsibility to confirm that the retention knob (pull
stud) purchased from MariTool Inc. is the correct shape, size and specification recommended by the machine tool
builder. In no way shall MariTool Inc. be liable for any costs, machine down time, injuries or deaths resulting from
a retention knob breaking or improperly holding a tool holder in the machine as a result of MariTool Inc. giving an
incorrect recommendation or part number.
Retention knobs have a limited functional lifespan. In this industry most machine tool builders and retention knob
manufacturers recommend replacing them every year. Using a retention knob past its functional lifespan may result in
catastrophic failure and tool holder ejection. It is always the users responsibility to keep track and have in place
a maintenance schedule to inspect retention knobs for tightness, wear and cracking. In no way shall MariTool Inc. be
liable for any costs, machine down time, injuries or deaths resulting from a retention knob breaking or improperly
holding a tool holder in the machine tool.
MariTool Inc. may offer by phone or email technical advice. These recommendations (technical advice) are merely
opinions from either past experiences or from trusted sources such as books or cutting literature. These
recommendations are given as a courtesy and are given without charge. Due to the incredible amount of variables
in your (the user) facility these recommendations may not be ideal or applicable. It is still your (the user)
responsibility to confirm that using recommendations (technical advice) from MariTool are safe and within
the limitations of your machine and setup. All such recommendations (technical advice) are given and accepted at
your (the users) risk. In no way shall MariTool Inc. be liable for any costs, machine down time, injuries or
deaths resulting from any incorrect recommendations.
