Yesterday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall of over 22,000 Robert Bosch miter saws. There is a risk that the lower guard can break and then come into contact with the blade. This poses a laceration hazard to users and bystanders.
The saws involved in the recall are the SkilSaw® 10-inch compound miter saws and were sold at Lowe’s stores earlier this year.
