  • Another look alike, are these any good?

    Another case of you get what you pay for. Over at the BT3 site a number of people have posted that they bought this jigsaw and came away disappointed. I saw some good reports on their old joiner(PC lookalike) but then they switched to a different model(Makita lookalike) but the verdict is still out on that. These are basically made in China tools and by their price point I'd say they probably fall in the quality range of Harbor Freight tools. Reports on their customer service after the sale has also ranged from excellent to carppy.
    I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

      I've check out the HF router but it pulls a wapping 19 amps. I only have 15 available at the moment.
