The spindle on the saw may slip, causing the blade to contact the lower guard, posing a hazard to the consumer from an exposed blade. DeWALT received one report of the blade slipping. A consumer received minor scratches to his hand after his spindle slipped. The recall involves 7 1/4-inch circular saws with the model numbers DW368, DW368K, or DW369CSK. The model number is located on a black label near the handle of the saw, or on a yellow sticker attached to the carrying case. The saws have date codes 200128-F through 200152- F stamped on the bottom of the motor case. The housing is yellow and the word "DeWALT" is printed on the upper blade guard. Home centers and hardware stores nationwide sold the circular saws from July 2001 through December 2001 for between $120 and $135. Consumers should stop using the circular saws immediately and return them to the nearest DeWALT service center for a free repair.
