For civility discussion and exchange views;
Recently bought a Harbor Freight cordless/driver 19.2v drill, for $29.99 during their sales. Sold my cordless Porter Cable 14.4v last year together with all my woodworking's tools. I need a cordless drill/driver for a small job. To my surprise this China-made tool is solid but crude not as nice, smooth or beautiful compares with Porter Cable. I returned the next day and bought an additional battery ($19.99) and two year warranties ($10). I figure if it failed in two years I still got my money worth of an investment of $65.
The charger is a simple 24V DC. No "memory" or "program" compares with Porter Cable. Just a simple 24V DC charger. On further examination of the battery, it has 14 Ni-Cad 1.2V 1300 mAH cells. Comparable Sanyo's cell cost more than $5 per cell. Harbor Freight replacement battery cost $19.99. Would you not consider it as selling below cost or "give away"?
