WASHINGTON, DC -- The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission, in cooperation with DeWalt Industrial Tool Co. of Towson, MD, announced the recall of about 97,000 framing saws and 37,000 circular saws because the lower blade guard can fail to close, leaving the blade exposed and presenting a laceration hazard to customers.

The DeWalt 378G and DW378GT 7-1/4-inch framing saws were sold at major home centers and hardware stores nationwide from January 2003 through August 2006 for about $170.  The circular saw was sold from May 2006 through September 2006 for between $380 and $800, depending on the kit.
