Needs to be moved to tools.
Plastic gears and thin wire mean "burn up fast" to me. Never got that far, for a hundred bucks I was hoping it would at least pretend to be a tool, for a little while anyway. :wink:the dremel is a toy for a reason.. plastic gears and thin low gauge wiring..
Interesting - Dremel is owned by Bosch and B&D/PC/Stanley/Dewalt is Black and Decker so I'd have thought they would not source from the same factories...the dremel is a toy for a reason.. plastic gears and thin low gauge wiring..
the porter cable is the exact same tool as the black and decker along with the stanley fatmax.. all made by the same company not to mention since pc quality went out the window 6 years ago when black and decker bought them out
Did you get your Fein at Home Depot? I got mine in aug on clearance for $149 plus I got a additional 10% off so it was about 140 sometimg w/ tax. I also have the 10.8(12 max) bosch .ratherbefishing said:I bought the Porter Cable because of the quick change blade and overall feel. Used for a dozen or so projects, including cutting square openings in Permabase. It worked great. Then I found a Fein kit for a price I couldn't resist. When I got home, I did an informal comparo, cutting thru a 2x4 and a few other tests. The Fein won, but not by as much as I expected. It was slightly more powerful, had slightly less vibration. Blades are easier to find. More accessories are available. So I sold the PC to a friend.
I have no information or opinion on the durability of either tool, but am confident the Fein is built to last. But performance-wise, the PC worked great.
