I was at a local woodworking store the other day, looking at planners because I am in the market for one. I talked to one of the sale representatives, who claimed he used to worked for HD, about his thoughts on the Dewalt vs. the Rigid. He said the Dewalt is a much better planner, the best in its class which includes the Rigid R4330. He also said that Rigid reverse-engineers a lot of other manufacturers' tools, spends a lot less money or R&D, and cuts corners in making tools by not using quality material. All of this results in inferior tools that don't last as long as their counterparts. Is there any truth to what he claimed? I'm curious.
