Porter Cable was the cat's meow back in the day, but like everyone else, they couldn't compete without outsourcing. All the good name brands have different lines of the same product, including Millwaukee. Dewalt makes the same stuff I have, in China too. I was looking for "Made in USA" in any brand, but couldn't find it. The Dewalts cost more than any other tool(s) they carried. It was because they were made in Mexico, when all the other brands were made in China. You could feel the difference. It was worth the extra $$$ for me to have the peace of mind.
