DeWALT is recalling about 13,000 table saws because the pivot bracket can separate and cause kick back, posing a severe laceration hazard. The table saws were sold nationwide from April 2007 through January 2008 for approximately $500. The recall affects 10-inch DeWALT table saws with model number DW744 with date codes 200715 through 200740. The model number and date code are located on the name plate on the front of the saw. Saws stamped with an “X” on the name plate are not included in the recall. Consumers should stop using the saw and contact DeWALT at 888-742-9178 to obtain a free replacement table saw.
