Band saws, frequently used in home workshops, are prone to certain malfunctions that can cause injury to users or bystanders. Many models do not include a sufficient blade guard and are susceptible to having the saw blade break during operation. Other potential risks for band saw accidents include a risk of electrocution and fire in faulty products. In one recent case, band saws manufactured by Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp were recalled due to faulty switches that could become stuck.
Another common problem with consumer-grade power tools involves issues with power outage protection, a simple but essential safety measure that is often overlooked by tool manufacturers.
