    X2 on the Waterloo, we used to beat the crap out of them at the old millwright job and they kept on going. Didn't care how much weight was in them, or what kind of floor surface.

    Festool or Metabo. Everything else is made in china to a price point, including Milwaukee. Even if the design and marketing is USA, they are riding the brand fumes into oblivion.
