Home Depot Table Saw Recall: 10-inch Ridgid Table Saws
About 3,000 Ridgid 10-inch table saws sold exclusively at Home Depot stores are being recalled due to the possibility that stacked blade sets can be ejected from the saw, posing a laceration risk.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) posted a notice of the Home Depot Ridgid table saw recall on August 19, citing at least three reports of the saw’s arbor shaft failing when used with a stacked blade set, also known as a stacked dado set.
Although no injuries have been confirmed as a result of this defect, consumers have been told to immediately stop using the table saws. The distributor, One World Techologies, Inc., is offering free on-site repairs.

Home Depot stores throughout the United States sold the Ridgid Table Saws for about $600 between January 2009 and July 2009.
The recall involves the Ridgid 10-inch table saw, model R4511, with manufacturing date codes between CD0829 and CD0837. The model number and the manufacturing dates are on a metal plate on the rear of the cabinet. Table saws with the “Arbor Inspected” sticker above the plate or on an orange square on the outside of the package are not included in the recall.
