You Get What You Pay For

Saturday, February 23, 2008

Price is an accurate measure of quality when you are comparing compound miter saws. This is a competitive marketplace -- enough so that manufacturers have to create crisp features to set their products apart.

If a manufacturer wants to deliver exceptional quality, it probably has to include high-quality parts that cost more, ultimately resulting in higher prices.

Over the years, I have never been disappointed when I have paid more for a high-quality power tool. I want to know it will be durable and produce accurate work.
