Miter Saws Recalled; Six Incidents Logged

WMH Tool Group Inc., of Elgin, Ill., is recalling about 7,100 Performax and Wilton 10" Sliding Miter Saws. The saw handle's switch can fail, causing the saw to smoke, spark, trip circuit breakers, and disable the safety brake. The saw also can keep operating unless the unit is unplugged, posing a laceration hazard to consumers. WMH has received reports of six incidents with the saws, but no injuries have been reported.

The recall includes Performax model number 90206 and Wilton model number 34570 10-inch sliding miter saws with date code/serial numbers ranging from W062505 to W070405. The model number and date code/serial numbers are printed on a black label on the motor housing of the saw. The equipment was sold at home centers and hardware retailers nationwide from August 2006 through March 2007 for between $150 and $250.

Consumers should immediately stop using these saws and call WMH to receive a replacement miter saw or a full refund. For more information, contact WMH at (800) 689-9928 or visit www.wmhtoolgroup.com.
