Last week Bosch announced a recall in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on its 1380 SLIM Small Angle Grinder. According to the manufacturer, the grinder may overheat and melt the brush cover, resulting in injury.
The models affected contain the following date codes:
502, 503, 504, 505, 506, 507, 508, 509, 511
The date code can be found within the white box on the label under the tool’s handle. If you own this grinder with the above date codes, Bosch advises that you stop using it immediately and call: 1-844-552-6724
If the date code is worn to the point that it can’t be read, call the number and return the tool for confirmation.
