  • RECALL--Sears fence

    Just read a post on another forum and it involved a recall for a Sears tablesaw fence. I happen to own this saw and called Sears and they are sending out replacement kits for the defective part. Here is the recall notice.
    __________________CPSC, Sears Roebuck and Co. Announce Recall of Table Saw Rip Fences

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in
    cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary
    recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using
    recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

    Manufacturer of Rip Fence: Rexon Industrial Corp. Ltd., of East
    Windsor, Conn.

    Distributor/Retailer: Sears Roebuck and Co., of Hoffman Estates, Ill.

    Hazard: The rip fence - a metal guide that keeps material being sawed
    from shifting side to side as it passes through the cutting blade - can
    come loose. This could result in kickback of the material being sawed
    and possible injury to the operator.

    Incidents/Injuries: Rexon on behalf of Sears has received 230 reports
    of the rip fence bracket coming loose. No injuries were reported.

    Description: The rip fence on these saws is made of silver extruded
    aluminum, is 31inches in length, and has an over-locking handle with a
    black die-cast aluminum head. They were included with Craftsman table
    saw model number 137.21830.

    Sold at: Sears stores nationwide from August 2002 through November
    2004. The cost of complete table saw is about $399, and the cost of the rip
    fence is about $40.

    Manufactured in: Taiwan

    Remedy: The firm will provide free replacement parts with instructions
    to consumers.

    Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact the Sears
    Craftsman Helpline at (800) 843-1682 between 8:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET
    Monday through Friday.

    Thanks for posting this! I bought one of these saws in November 04'. I always questioned the stability of the fence mentioned.
