    O/T- Made In The USA


    I was going through our woodshop yesterday to take inventory of the tools and see what needed replaced as far as parts etc. ,, Many of my tools belonged to my grandfather and they are stamped, Made in the USA,, of course they are older tools, and I have a Craftsman radial arm saw that is a real badass and the quality of manufacturing in that old saw is way beyond what you buy today,, most of my newer tools are made in china or some BFE country,, there is a reason that the older tools are much better tools than today,, proudly made in the USA is gone by the wayside now and quality is not in many products now,, we need more Made in the USA products to buy to get our counrty a once agian top manufacturing country in the world,, anytime I have the occasion to by something that is made here, I do so,, most of the time you pay alittle more but in my mind, it is worth it,, suppose we will ever see those times again,,

    Sentiment: Hold

    • Trouble is that we have greened ourselves out of the manufacturing business,, there are so many polution EPA guidelines that no one can comply and make a profit,, so now we send all that stuff over seas where they don't give a #$%$ about polution,, what a bunch of hipocrites we are,, man, if the EPA would just lighten up a little then maybe we could get some manufacturing back in this country,, I know there is alot more to it than that but that would be a start,,

      Sentiment: Hold

    • Right on Craig! If we all make a little more effort we can make a difference....I buy american micro brews most the time or SAM and I bought SAM at 80 how ya like them apples about 140 ...I recomended it here over and over.....My wife and I both drive fords and I'm typing on a huelet Packard (darn accountants over there musta been foriegn) you have to admit manufacturing better under Obama
