Porter-Cable(R) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 196,000 7-1/4-inch MAG-Saw(TM) Circular Saws. Consumers were advised to stop using the saws immediately, unless otherwise instructed.

According to Porter-Cable, the lower guard on the saws can stick in the "open" position, posing a risk of severe lacerations to users. There have been no reports of incidents or injuries.

The recall involves model numbers 324MAG (serial numbers 10001 through 108962), 325MAG (serial numbers 10001 through 014712), 423MAG (serial numbers 10001through 100371), and 424MAG (serial numbers 10001through 012690). The model and serial numbers are located on a label on the top of the saws. Units marked with a “T” at the location shown below have been inspected and are not affected by this recall. “Porter-Cable(R)” is written on the side of the saws.

The saws were sold at major home center and hardware stores throughout the U.S. from March 2004 through November 2005 for between U.S. $130 and $160.
