Who owns which marketing brand label is not near as interesting as who actually makes the equipment – IMHO

That was my original point. Just because it’s made in China or Taiwan doesn’t automatically mean it’s junk. Doesn’t mean it’s not either. Even for the HF stuff. Interesting video from AvE who makes a habit of disassembling stuff. Got 2 of those angle grinders from HF for $9.99 on sale. I’m sure they will last me at least 10 years. I keep a grinding wheel on my big Makita and cut off and wire wheels on the HF ones.

Anybody remember the 60’s when “Made in Japan” was considered subpar?
