I have been noticing a bunch of low end tools coming out.I picked up the powertec 7 inch miter saw with very low expectations. it was 39.99 at sears.
it actually works.
but overall the trend is not good.
China seems to be pouring out a lot of tools of questionable safety.
A table saw with a plastic base?
Remember when there used to be old tools laying around the garage that seemed to last forever?
The last straw for me was my last Craftsman purchase.
A router table combo.
The fence was useless. After making about 40 passes( attempts really ) I decided to take it back.
That when it got interesting.
The bottom of the table had pretty much burst. MDF does not hold together.
One or two more passes and it may have been a emergency room trip.
sears took it back, restocking fee and all.
The money you save may be spent in blood pressure medication.
