    Frank, thanks for this. I don't have that one, but did a search on my no slide Winton CMS and it was recalled in Nov of '06 for possible blade "evacuation" I think my fingers should thank you too! so thanks again.

    Hazard: The saw handle’s switch can fail, causing the saw to smoke, spark, and trip circuit breakers, and disable the safety brake. The saw also can keep operating unless the unit is unplugged, posing a laceration hazard to consumers.

    AND if that isn't enough, its made out of lead.
