S-B Power Tool Co., of Chicago, Ill., is recalling about 920 BOSCH Angle Grinders, which are often used to sand or polish marble or metal. Some grinders were shipped without the side handle, which is used to control and guide the tool. Use of the grinder without the side handle can cause consumers to lose control of the tool and be injured.
The recalled grinders bear model 1752G7. The model number is on the side of the grinder, near the BOSCH name. The grinder is mainly teal blue and gray with a black power cord. The grinder was made in Germany. Mass merchandise, hardware and home center stores nationwide sold the grinder from February 2000 through April 2000 for about $150.
Consumers should stop using the grinders immediately and check to see if the side handle is missing. If so, call S-B Power Tool at (800) 241-3848 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday to get the free side handle for the grinder.
