Recall: Black and Decker Orbital Sanders

September 14th, 2010

Black and Decker is issuing a recall on about 192,000 orbital sanders.  The models number RO400, RO400G, RO410, RO410K, RO410LW and FS3000ROS that have date codes between 200701 and 200920 are all being recalled due to a potential issue where the sandpaper backing plate can fly off or break apart or fly off altogether.  If you have one of these sanders call B&D at (866) 220-1767 and they will send you a new backing plate.

Dealamanjaro: Black and Decker Drilling and Driving Set

June 18th, 2010

Just in time for father’s day, Lowe’s has a great deal on a 174 piece drill and drive set.  It has a plethora of different screw-driving bits, as well as nut drivers, a couple of spade bits, a handful of masonry bits, and even a countersinking bit.  Black and Decker bits won’t hold up as well as something from Bosch or Dewalt, but this set is so cheap that won’t really matter.  It also comes in a nice case to keep everything neat and organized.  Pick one up from Lowe’s for just $16.97.
