I stopped at a HF store yesterday to look at the Fein MM type tool they are
selling. They didn't have any in stock, but they did have the Tormek copy on
the shelf. I was a little surprised how cheesy it looked even for a HF tool.
I would love to hear continued reviews.
The price with the coupon is attractive, but by now I've learned that
cheaper isn't always a better deal. Sometimes paying more is cheaper in the
long run, and I have to think something made in Germany is probably built to
higher standards than a similar item made in China.
Well, spend what you want, but I don't think where it's made has as much impact
as HOW it's made..
I'm sure that there are no places in Germany making cheap tools, though..
As the owner of a shop full of mostly chi-wan-ese tools, mostly Jet lathes, I'm
impressed with a good tool, and don't really care where it's made..
(not implying that the HF tool is good or bad, as I haven't seen it)
