I have to 3rd that. We constantly get new members who come here looking for parts for their Sears routers because Sears, Ereplacementparts and others don't have them. Collets in particular seem to a problem down the road and their seems to be no crossover. The fact that Sears will have a 2nd party handling their tools makes it even more uncertain. Add PC to that issue because PC was bought out by the group that owns B & D and their quality has slipped. Many of us were PC fans at one time, including me, but we stay away from them these days. DeWalt is still good, I've had good luck with Hitachi, Triton is becoming the gold standard for table mounted, and Milwaukee is still good but I've had some issues with their customer service lately. Bosch is the only one that scores high on all categories. Have a look at CPO outlets for reconditioned.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
