I've finally saved enough change for a new saw, a 15 amp, 7-1/4" Magnesium Skilsaw (Mod. SHD77M) that I've wanted for a long time. Unfortunately, most are made in China, Arghh. One distributor called Skil and was told they're made in Alabama--well not the one they shipped me. There it was hidden on the bottom "Assembled in China", on the motor plate too. Back it went.
Six internet retailers I talked to didn't seem interested enough to dig into the subject enough to make a sale. I've seen the standard 77's at Menard boasting an American flag, but are any of the Mag one built here?
Can anyone point me to a retailer that will sell me a Skilsaw made in America?
