The Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS), the UK’s national product safety regulator, has issued a Safety Alert for an angle grinder saw attachment which could cause serious injury or even death.

This toothed saw blade attachment is not designed to be used with an angle grinder. It could result in ‘kickback’ when the blade snags or strikes an object during operation causing the tool to be suddenly forced back towards the operator.
