I need to invest (ie; spend real money) in a "one-time buy, use 'til I die"
I am considering the following three candidates
* Milwaukee 5625
* PC 7519
The Hitachi is the price and features list winner at just under $170.
It appears to come with the most toys for $110 less. The Milwaukee comes in
at just under $280. The PC 7519 likewise weighs in at just about $280.
I'm not real thrilled about the PC rotating barrel height adjustment,
having read some mention of aluminum to aluminum contact. As a former
machinist, I can assure you that that particular thought is about as
'happy-making' as seeing something wiggling under my skin.
That leaves tha Milwaukee and the Hitachi. ISTR that I've read a strong
recommendation for the Milwaukee at some point in the past ... but that
particular review may have been written before the debut of the Hitachi.
Since I'm stuck with either buying an import or making my own from
scratch, I'm not too antsy about buying something made in one country or
So ... what d'ya say, gang? The red one or the green?
