Is Skil tools gone to pot?
As a retired contractor, I used to have 5 or 6 Skil Mod 77 saws on the job all the time and it seemed they couldn't be worn out. I had 2 battery drills with 4 batteries that we used everyday and they just couldn't be hurt it seemed, as much as employees pounded them.
A couple years age I bought a Skil 12V, mod 2467 that I thought looked like a nice drill. Being retired I used it 4 times always having to recharge it of course. The charger shot craps and I imagine a replacement charger (I have been told) would cost as much as a new outfit and if they're junk anyway, I suppose I can still use my plug in tools. :).
Have Skil gone to junk? What say you guys? I assume Milwaukee and Porter Cable are still good?
