I agree with JimDaddyO. Some Canadian Tire stuff is amazing value, but most of there woodworking tools are lower end Chinese stuff. With Bosch, Makita and all the others using China as a factory, and outputting a better grade of tool, still at really low prices, it makes sense to go with them instead. I don’t think many younger woodworkers out there realize just how ridiculously cheap these tools are today compared to a few decades ago. For example, my first jointer, bought in 1978, was a $600 machine from Sears. I bought my first carbide-tipped 10” saw blades about then for something like $75+ each. In today’s money that’s a lot of coin !
