The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Robert Bosch Tool Corp., is recalling select models of the SKIL miter SkilSaw, a 10-in. compound miter saw. The lower guard on the tool can break and contact the blade during use, posing a laceration hazard to users. The firm has received no reports of incidents or injuries, however.
Approximately 22,149 units of the product, which was manufactured in China, were sold at Lowe's nationwide and OC Tanner from January 2012 to April 2012.
Consumers should immediately stop using the miter saw and contact Robert Bosch Tool Corp. for a free lower guard replacement kit. For more information, visit skiltools.com.
