CPSC, Roto Zip Tool Corporation Announce Recall of Handheld Saws

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Roto Zip Tool Corporation, of Cross Plains, Wis., is
voluntarily recalling about 1.9 million handheld saws. The handles on
these saws can separate from the body, causing the operator to be cut.

CPSC and Roto Zip Tool Corp. have received 360 reports of loose or
separating handles on the saws. As a result, there have been 19 reports
of injuries to consumers, including some cuts requiring stitches.

The recall includes Revolution(R), RebelTM and SolarisTM model
Spiral SawTM power tools. The brand name and "ROTOZIP SPIRAL SAW" are
written on the side of the tools. The saws are mostly black or red. The

recalled saws include the serial numbers listed below:

Saw Model: Revolution(R) Serial Number Range01: through 1,145,000
Saw Model: RebelTM Serial Number Range01: through 415,000
Saw Model: SolarisTM Serial Number Range: 01 through 270,000

Home, hardware and department stores, and infomercials sold these
saws nationwide from December 1999 through January 2002 for between $50
and $190.

Consumers should remove the handle from their recalled saw if
there is a loose fit between the tool handle and the tool body, and
contact Roto Zip Tool Corp. to receive a free replacement handle. For
more information, contact the Roto Zip Tool Corp. toll-free at (800)
920-1467 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. CT any day of the week, or visit the
firm's web site at www.rotozip.com.
