Hello Jocks! My warning might be better late than never. In an effort to save a few bucks I bought a Wilton 10” sliding compound Miter saw last summer. Well the other night it went bonkers! As I prepared to make a cut I started the saw and the motor just started screaming, sparks started flying. smoke filled the basement, and the saw would not shut off until I unplugged it. The brake is now fried, it’s “loose” and trips the circut breaker now when I run it.
I’m sure I’m do a lecture on filling out the registration card and such…but I looked up the problem on the internet and found the following recall. Believe me folks the write up under “hazard” is to atee!
Jocks, if you have one of these don’t blow off the recall. I’d consider myself a true grit, rough and tough sort…but this was a pretty scary episode.
I’ll keep you posted on how customer service deals with this.
