Topic tags/keywords: rigid table saw r4511 safety recall

While trying to help out another LJ, I came across a recall notice for the Rigid R4511 Table Saw. I thought I would post the information here so that it doesn’t get lost in another posting.

The following are some excerpts from the notice.

For Immediate Release
August 19, 2009

Ridgid Table Saws Sold Exclusively at Home Depot Recalled
by One World Technologies Due to Laceration Hazard

Description: This recall involves Ridgid 10” table saws, model R4511. The recalled saws have
manufacturing date codes between CD0829 and CD0837.

Hazard: The table saw’s arbor shaft can fail when used with a stacked blade set (commonly
known as a “stacked dado set” and used to cut grooves). The stacked blade set can be ejected
from the saw, posing a potential laceration hazard to consumers.

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled table saw and contact One
World Technologies to schedule a free on-site repair.

Firm’s Recall Hotline: (866) 539-1710

The actual notice can be found here.

Well, I now see that this info was posted 4 months ago. But, just in case some of the new members are not aware, I will leave this posting up.

This recall is about a year old, was anybody affected by this?
