Jobsite Table Saws Recalled for Laceration Hazard

DEWALT Industrial Tool Co., of Towson, Md., is recalling about 13,000 DEWALT DW744 Jobsite Table Saws. The pivot bracket on the saw can separate, which can misalign the blade and the fence and cause kickback. This poses a laceration hazard to consumers. The company says it has received one reported incident of the table saw's blade misaligning but no injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the yellow and black, 10-inch DEWALT jobsite table saw model number DW744 with date codes 200715 through 200740. 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. The equipment was sold at major home centers and hardware stores nationwide from April 2007 through January 2008 for about $500.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled table saws and contact DEWALT for the location of a service center to obtain a free replacement table saw. For more information, contact DEWALT toll-free at (888) 742-9178 or visit www.dewalt.com.
