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.

A new line of saw blades from German manufacturer Guhdo is armed with “electrostatically applied coating” and a “proprietary grinding process,” the company said.

The company said its electrostatically applied coating is thinner, stronger and more uniform over the body of the blade. The Gmaxx coating and grinding processes provide longer blade life and superior blade performance, according to Guhdo, and are designed for use on table saws, radial arm saws and chop / miter saws.
