Do you find that tools you buy from the Home Depot from brands you expect to be decent to be of extraordinarily low quality? Its happened to me several times, most recently with an Empire Level small combination square. I mean, its a $7 item, and the only moving part is a screw, but the screw could not hold the ruler tight and I had to exchange it.
Do they have all these brands manufacture even cheaper versions for sale at HD?
I was at our local Menards today and noted the combination kits they used to sell with the PS21/41 were off the shelves and the display model was gone. Now I have absolutely no idea if they were simply out of stock or making room for something else. They still had the PS21 and 41 available separately. I think they had the kit with the PS41 and the drill from the same series.
I cannot remember if they actually carried the kit that had both the 21/41 in it. Irregardless, the 12v combo kits were gone and it makes me wonder if they are making room for the new PS42 kits? Just wondering and to be honest, hoping. I like the compact Bosch drivers. I don’t care if they are the most powerful or whatever. Their compact size and the way their grip fits my hand makes them a good, no make that great, choice for me.
