What ever woodworking tool you buy I highly recommend The Porter Cable brand.
I've been using them since the mid 1970's and they have been very reliable.
None better as far as i'm concerned.
Charlie, I hope you are right about Porter Cable. Yesterday I ordered a PC 7-amp angle grinder/cutoff tool (PC60TPAG). It was priced right for the limited use I need it for. The big selling point was the inclusion of a cutting guard and a grinding guard. I will probably never use it as an angle grinder but I have definite need for a cutoff tool and all of my body parts. It is a shame most manufacturers only include a grinding guard and not a cutting guard.
Regarding Harbor Freight. I bought an inexpensive cutout tool there and it paid for itself on the first tough job I did with it. I had to cut out a kitchen counter for a new stove. 3/4" plywood + cement board + ceramic tile. I use tile bits to cut the cement board and tile. Then I chased it with a wood bit. Actually I chased it with a couple of wood bits. I think my cost for bits about equaled the cost of the tool. Since then I have used it for a couple of smaller, less challenging projects.
On the other hand, a 1/2HP sump (not a Harbor Freight brand) I bought there froze up in storage after some hard work pumping out my swimming pool a couple of times.
