Default Made In the USA



Advertise Here

I found this website, thought others would appreciate it. I for one am going back to the way I used to be, avoiding products not made in the USA.
Got away from that thinking for quite a while, just thinking I was being silly.
But in my life I always found, my first instincts are correct.

when Lowes first brought in Craftsman several of the Battery Powered tools were made in the USA and had higher torque and speed than the China stuff, haven't seen the Made in America lately though. Need to let Lowes that is what we as a consumer want. Yes, they were 20% higher in Price but the tools were better made.

Craftsman has been sold to Stanley B&D.
Reportedly they started moving production back to the U.S.

Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK) today announced it will expand its U.S. manufacturing footprint with a new CRAFTSMAN manufacturing plant in Fort Worth, TX. The groundbreaking for the 425,000-square-foot facility will take place in summer 2019, and the plant is expected to be completed in late 2020.

It's not only tools that concern me, I feel the sane way about firearms.

Great post. I perused the list and I am glad to say I have several items from various manufacturers. I can tell you the Bondhus balldrivers are industrial grade tools that wear forever.

Any link to AMERICAN made products is a good link.

DeWalt has a line of power tools assembled in the USA. Not every one of their pieces across the model line, but its a start, and I've always had good luck with DeWalt cordless power tools.

The pole barn is no stranger to DeWalt either. Buy once or cry twice.

I do not care what people say they will choose price over USA. I still do not think people in the USA will make quality goods. We might get a lot of machines and a few people to make quality cheap enough to compete.

We need a train interstate system.

Thanks for the link! I too am a fan of buying US made goods, even if it costs more. It has to be good quality for me to buy it twice, but I do my best to buy domestic goods. I was done with China before CV19. I figure there is a good chance we will be at war with them eventually anyway, and every dollar spent on Chinese goods is another 5.8mm that can be fired at an American.

I didn't see it on the list but Park Tools is an American company specializing in cycling tools.
They are the go-to tools in bike shops worldwide including the pro cycling circuit.

Made in USA I am not too big on. It’s a plus don’t get me wrong but a NOT made in China is a bigger plus to me. I don’t mind a German , Italian , Japanese, etc product at all. And I’d rather buy Mexico than buy China.

I always try to buy Made in USA, if at all possible.

Japanese, German, or other European made is also acceptable.

If I do have to buy something Chinese made, I try to get it from Taiwan. They, at least, have been a staunch friend of America since the earliest days.

Dewalt battery tools are made US. Batteries Taiwan and Japan (either are OK by me).

I'm totally sold on the Dewalt Flexvolt. Their battery mower uses x2 batteries. I have not used one but all the Flexvolt I've purchased are great.

The Amkus battery operated extrication tools use the Flexvolt battery in the 60v config and they use a LOT of juice and have great run time. I have a lot experience with these tools and the battery/Dewalt motor is an excellent piece.

Just don't forget that they are owned by Luxotica, but you won't likely get around that.

We need a train interstate system.
We have long-haul railroads the go pretty much everywhere needed. Additional NS lines would be good but we have never had (chick/egg problem). Try to build a new rail line (the progs won't even let a pipeline go thru). RR are ONLY efficient for long haul of bulk cargo. The big RR are not particularly well run and very poor customer service.

We do NOT need passenger "light rail". Short or long haul - a financial boondoggle that does NOT work. Total logistical failure. Including in eurp.

I am all on board with buying American made, but do Illinois and Oregon really count as USA though?
