The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with DEWALT Industrial Tool Co., has issued a voluntary recall of about 13,000 DEWALT DW744 Jobsite Table Saws. The pivot bracket on the saw can seperate, causing the blade and the fence to misalign, causing kick back. Although no injuries have been reported, DEWALT has received one report of the table saw's blade misaligning.
Manufactured in Mexico and sold at major home centers and hardware stores from April 2007 through January 2008 for about $500, this recall involves DEWALT 10 inch yellow and black jobsite table saws, model number DW744. Please check the CPSC press release
for more information on the table saws.
Consumers should stop using the recalled table saw and contact DEWALT at (888) 742-9178 to find out the location of a service center to obtain a free replacement table saw. For more information, visit the firm's website at www.dewalt.com
