Bert, You do get what you pay for. If you constantly buy cheap tools you’ll be buying (replacing) them constantly. Even if the cheaper tools look like their more expensive counterparts, they’re not the same. I personally won’t use HF routers because of the vibration in the few I’ve tried and the overall cheap plastic feel. You don’t need to go all the way to the other end of the spectum, either. It boils down to reseach and trying out someone else’s tool if you can. Get the best you can justify to yourself spending for the intended use. HF has some good deals. All the major brands have some tools I like, Some you couldn’t give me. There are twice as many opinions as tools to choose from out there, it comes down to safety, budget, preference; in that order.
