Default Ridgid R4511 Table Saw Recall!

Some of you may have this model table saw and should be aware of the recall. The information is available here:
http://www.ridgid.com/Download/R4511_PR.pdf

It sounds like there is a problem when using a stacked dado set, the blade may come off.
Not good!

I'll pass the word on other forums.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Recall said no injuries reported. Must not have been counting underwear, mine would have been totalled

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

No kidding, John. About the time the shaft came apart and the cutters (hopefully) imbedded themselves in the ceiling like martial arts throwing knives, I'd of lost it!

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

Or came out the bottom of the saw and did a hop, skip, jump between your legs.

Thanks for the info. I checked this out with Ridgid and found that saws manufactured during a specific run were affected. My saw was made after the problem was corrected. I feel much better now about using my saw.
Thanks again,
