One World Technologies Recalls Sheet Sanders Due to Laceration Hazard

A voluntary recall on Ryobi ¼ Sheet Sanders [model S651D] was announced yesterday.   The sanders are manufactured in China by One World Technologies, Inc of Ansderson S.C. and over 300,000 units have been sold.

Apparently pieces of the fan can break off from the fan assembly and be ejected from the product, posing a laceration hazard to consumers.  The firm has recieved 31 reports of broken fan parts being ejected from the sander, including two reports of minor lacerations.

The Ryobi sheet sanders, model S651D. is blue and black. The word “Ryobi” is on the left side. The model number can be found on the data plate located on the side of the sander just below the handle.

These units were sold at: Home Depot, Gardner, Inc., Tap Enterprises, Inc., Direct Tools Factory Outlets, Amazon.com, and ToolKing.com from June 2005 through August 2010 for about $30.

If you own one of these sanders it is recommended that you  stop using it and contact One World Technologies to receive a free replacement sander.
