Did not know that about DeWalt...but I've bought 10 or more and only trouble was one transmission...would jump out of drive....found out it was cheaper to dump it and spend another $35 on the same model almost new....love their rechargeable 12V...

back in the seventies...skill made the best worm drive saw that was available in the south.....I now have a milwaukee that will put the makitas on the side of the road. rockwell used to put out a good tool.....back then. Better to rebuild the old ones if you can.

I have an awful lot of "SHOP" power tools, & most of the time they work great. Also, the prices are usually lower on any given item.
