  • Safety Recall

    I know this is a scroller forum but there are those out there that saw there own lumber and maybe using this tabletop Skil saw that is being recalled.

    Just thought I would pass on a safety recall of a bench top saw. It is a SKIL table saw. It is made by Bosch It has the model number 3400 printed on the front side of the table base with the following date codes--28501-28831; 38101-39231; and48101-48811. The saw holds a 10" blade and has a metal top and red base. They were manufactored in Taiwan from July 2002 to Oct 2004. Price was about $149 to $199 They were sold at all Home centers and hardware stores. Something about the blade drive mechanism loosening and the motor shifting causing kickback. If anyone operates a tablesaw they know or should be aware of kickback. More injuries are caused with kickback than cutting off digits.

    If you own this saw stop using imediatly and contact Bosch at 800-351-5788 or visit Skil web site at

    Hope this has not had an ill effect on any of our readers. Back to making sawdust.

      So many are selling them here it’s not worth us making them. However, we do very well with our dough boards. Nobody else makes them. We have an order for a dough board and matching pepper grinder. The walnut board I could make into a beautiful basket or two and sell for lots more than they are getting...

      I use #7 on my younger kid puzzles. Easier for them to put together.

      I did forget to mention he cut a finger on his left hand with the bandsaw. Just took skin off. Lucky again. Told him he was calling 911 next time.

      Jim, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, on the left you’ll find some style options that change the font size and color. I’ve been using Defalt vB5 Style, and it seems to be about the best for my iPad, but I’m still experimenting with my iMac.
