I can say this, all of these big name tool companies are starting to slack in quality of build. Porter cable used to be the go to for nailers. Recently I’ve had their 16 gauge trim gun break on me 3 times. The last one only lived for about 6 months. 
 

I replaced it with a metabo which was bought by Hitachi I think. So I’m running an old school Hitachi framing nailer (Beast), Metabo 16ga trim, and Porter Cable 18ga and 23ga trim guns which are both older and seem to be holding up just fine.

Only rock Makita hail Nippon. Had a Makita drill I abused installing vinyl siding, windows etc. then left in storage for years. Found it moving one day an it was still charged and worked flawlessly. Since then I’m sure I’ve dumped 10k or more on all matching Makita and a motherload of the 18v batteries.

a guy(good friend actually, family even..) gave me these earlier this year while he was making space in his apartment. thought i'd want to sell them on marketplace, etc. after i thought about it i just preferred to keep. gave me a circular saw, too, but i guess he got buyers remorse b/c he asked for me to give it back. kinda bummed he took it back but it was still a nice thing to do. i've already used the drill a bit.

@nicklesndimesthats the way you want your tools to look. Also good if they weigh a ton. My uncle had this chop saw. Not sure the brand, it had worn off years before. We were driving down the road one day and the back of his van popped open and the saw fell out the back and bounced down the highway several hundred feet. It only bent a little bit and he straightened that son of a bitch back out by hitting it with a hammer. That 150 lb piece of shit is still in action to this day. Hah.
