Rick, what you’re describing is value. What you get for what you pay.

Not to pick on Festool, but I had a chance to test drive, side-by-side, the Hitachi 12” sliding compound MS and the Festool Kapex. If I hadn’t known their prices before the test drive and had been told I could have either saw for free, I would probably have chosen the Kapex, but mostly because it looked cooler in my opinion. But the Festool at $1400 vs the Hitachi at $400 results in the Hitachi, to me, representing higher value. Often the choices aren’t that easy, though.

-- I'm selfless because it feels so good!
