I found myself with three choices:
I bought the Porter Cable model, because it is made in America.
I've never been much for look-for-the-union-label and buy-made-in-America mantras spouted throughout the Eighties by organized labor, but in this economic and political climate, I find myself wanting to keep my money here, where it works best for my neighbors and their friends and their neighbors and their friends...
I suggest maybe you do the same.
Of course, sometimes it is hard to find products made in America. Sometimes one is compelled to wonder if the label is true.
Nonetheless, I submit the notion for your consideration.
Lastly, I purchased this product at Sears Hardware, because: "Sears, Roebuck & Co. maintains full job benefits and partial pay for military reservists called up to fight in the Iraq war"
For a list of other companies who are going beyond what is required by law for their employees serving the our Armed Forces, see here. If you can, buy from them.
