#1
Exclamation Was in the local Walmart, and noticed a product recall for the Dremel® MICRO™ Model 8050  Rotary Tool. The product manufacturing dates are limited, so this doesn't effect all of them.

wow, the notice suggests multiple design problems (controller electronics/switches, and overheating while in operation). Not thinking of getting one anymore Smile
