The well-known tool manufacturer, DeWalt, has recalled 122,000 of their drills due to a potential shock hazard.

The drill’s wiring can come in contact with internal moving parts causing a shock hazard.

Both drills were sold at Home Depot, Lowe’s, Amazon and more stores nationwide and online from September 2017 through November 2018.

The drills sold between $60.00-$70.00.
