I'd have to agree that that is a smoking deal. PC was my favourite brand for a few years and my favorite ever 12 volt drill and 18 gauge Brad nailer were PC. However, I've had to replace bearings in my two sanders and the ones I took out were cheap crap.

that is a smoking deal but if you have down time and repair/replacement costs due to the fact that new generation PC is crap, leaves you wanting and lots to be desired...
not such a good deal any more...

It is a shame to see GOOD tools being bought out and moved overseas. I have a PC circular saw that is probably 25 or 30 years old and still works great (I refurbish my tools vs replacing them). A new one would probably crap out within the first year. But with that said I would still buy the PC over something like a B & D. A ray of sunshine is that some of the brands are coming back to the U.S. ((ie - Powermatic is back in TN) Then again my Makita's are rock solid. Guess it's a crap shoot.
