A Little Bummed - Recall Notice
Jun 5th, 2015 at 6:24pm
 
Good Day Folks!

I finally was able to purchase a "decent" Table Saw (Grizzly G0771 10" Hybrid Table Saw) to replace a piece of junk bench top one. Well, less than 2 weeks after it arrived, I get an email about a
recall, and in big bold letters "Stop using the saw immediately!" until we send out the replacement part. I called them today, and they stated they hope to have the replacement part shipped by the end of June.

From Grizzly:
Quote:
We recently discovered that the motor pulley on this saw has an over-sized bore, which may prevent the pulley from securing properly to the motor shaft.

During saw operation, an improperly secured motor pulley and its machine key can come off the motor shaft and be thrown with great speed by the rotational force of the motor. If this happens, there is a small chance that the machine key can be ejected through the table opening and strike the operator or bystanders.
