Nothing worse in woodworking than having a fickle tool. Can't count on it working when you need it. I suggest you do what most of us do, invest in a better quality tool. Around here, the top choice is a Bosch 1617evspk kit. Has both fixed and plunge base, 1/4 and 1/2 collets and works great in a table. About $220 on Amazon, occasionally on sale for $20 less. Also check CPO for a refurbished one, usually about $170, and good as new. Personally Craftsman tools make good door stops. They stopped producing quality tools a long time ago.
Welcome to the Forum, btw, this is a good place to ask about what tools to get. You'll get a wide array of responses from people who have used different brands and can help you make a good choice in line with what you can afford.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
