Re: Best power tools?

Hello.
Do you know where B and D makes Dewalt tools? In China and Mexico. Likely in the same factories Ryobi comes out of.

So I can buy a Ryobi set for a fraction of the cost of a dewalt set... Use it long and hard and break it... buy a new set and be back to work as fast as I can go to HD and back... and be 100s of dollars ahead on what the Dewalt set cost...

Or I can spend the money on the dewalt set. Break it just as well... Take it to a repair shop, wait a week for parts to come in... pay for the repairs and be weeks behind and money in the hole...

For me it isn't much of a choice... If it where American Factories we were talking about it would be different, but it isn't.
