I have used a red "home use" Makita grinder for about 25 years. It saw very little home use. Sucker still runs like new. Gotta stick something in the switch to keep it on is all. I've never known a Makita tool to just quit working. Bought a lot of stuff at the Depot.

Also, companies like Ryobi and Black and Decker only make one line of tools. It would be way too expensive for them to make a special edition for Home Depot, especially since Home Depot isn't gonna pay a dime more than it has to. And no, Mark isn't paying me.

So Jeff, buddy, I can help you out. I know a shade tree lawyer that will help you sue Makita for that grinder they maliciously allowed to blow up in your hand. Gotta be gross negligence on their part. I'll only hit you for a small cut, maybe a third for me and a third for the shyster lawyer.

Llama is a Spanish Gun Company but they are DOA

Some INFO that might explain Why this weapon blew up....I am sure they were buying substandard steel or were outsourcing the Barrels etc to the lowest bidder considering their financial troubles....Want a Good handgun for less than an American made but at same quality...Look at the Taurus from Brazil....I have owned several and have had excellent performance from them in both revolver (.357) and automatics. ( .40 and .45 )

Courtesy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Llama_firearms

Llama filed for bankruptcy in 1992, and in 1993 sixty of its gunsmiths and employees formed a co-operative to buy the Llama name and all of the equipment. These Gabilondo employees negotiated over a protracted period of time and finalized the transfer around 2000.
The cooperative that took over was named Fabrinor Arma Corta y Microfusion, S.A. They moved the factory to Legutiano, and attempted to sell off Llama’s old property holdings. The company began to diversify offering not just handguns but precision parts made by investment casting.
The main problem with the new group was sales were not rising fast enough to cover the old debt they inherited from Llama. Fabrinor was able to reschedule the debts in 2002 and again in 2003, but even public listing on the stock market didn't help generate the funds required.
Thanks to regulatory intervention, Fabrinor was compelled to call a special shareholder meeting on January 12, 2005, to reveal fully to shareholders the company's financial situation, its plans to restructure into a limited partnership, and the latest plans to reschedule its inherited debts. The plans were rejected and the plant in Legutiano was closed.
