I wish swk would realize that the big box stores just use DeWalt and it's higher prices on tools to get people to buy the lower priced junk. Now Lowe's is coming out with their Kobalt cordless line. I would pull the complete DeWalt line out of Lowe's just to exercise a little leverage. Home Depot now handles the Ridgid cordless line exclusively. Stihl has no problem just selling their tools through authorized dealers. Milwaukee is now owned by an Asian conglomerate so SWK is going to prosper with them leaning toward more products being made in the U.S.A. They still use global materials on some tools & access., however they are making attempts to move as much to U.S.A. as possible.
