Are you saying that a product must say it is precision made in order to know you are getting a quality product?
I'm glad the OP is satisfied and the company put the customer first. I thought
I was pretty clear in what my opinion was. Maybe I came off the wrong way, so I will try to clarify.
I never said anything about quality or lack of . Precision and quality being two different things. I was questioning the expectations from a handheld tool in regards to precision. Or laying down a brand that is square along the base and sides . Bottom line is, the first brand didn't meet his expectations. He certainly has a right to return it.
So maybe I came off the wrong way at first.
I will repeat however, I stated for discriminating woodworkers, if you want repeatable precision/accuracy, those tools are available, but they cost more. Often the more expensive ones attach to a drill press. And eliminates any variation or off alignment that a hand held brand will introduce
I think there was some differing of opinion, and perhaps a misunderstanding on what exactly wasn't square or precise in the original brand.
But you are correct . We woodworkers need to speak up and act if a company tries to sell us inferior products. I happen to think that most woodworkers do speak up,if they don't feel their purchase meets their expectations.
I still don't see a difference in those brands. He asked, and thats my opinion. And I'm sticking to it.
