In this week's Recall RoundUp, a table saw, a beach chair, and a children's toy holder.
DeWalt recalled their DW744 Jobsite Table Saws. The pivot bracket on the saw can separate, which can misalign the blade and the fence and cause kick back. This poses a laceration hazard to consumers. Date codes included in the recall are 200715 through 200740. The table saws are yellow and black. The model number and date code are located on the name plate on the front of the saw. Table saws with an "X" stamped on the name plate by the date code are NOT included in this recall. They sold at major home centers and hardware stores nationwide from April 2007 through January 2008 for about $500. They were made in Mexico.
