The brushes in their motors are not spring loaded and do not slide in a
secure housing. They are poorly attached to flimsy, thin metal posts
which rust. In 2 to 3 years the posts rust through and fall off INTO THE
Shucks. I guess this means I'll have to stop using my circular
saw, the one I got in about 1975. And the sabre saw my son bought me
about 5 years ago, when the one I bought at about the same time I got my
circular saw died. And the drill I got along with the circular saw and
sabre saw. And the sander I got in probably about 1996. And the other
B&D tools I've accumulated along the way and have had for years, and all
still work. Next thing you know someone's gonna come along and tell me
the Craftsman router I've been using for 5-6 years won't last for more
than 2-3 years.
