Made In USA Product List


If you've bought any Made in USA tools or supplies recently please share. I'd be especially interested in hearing about plumbing and electrical fixtures. Maybe we'll be able to save a few jobs.

Anything I list will be, to the best of my knowledge, Made or Assembled in USA by a US owned company unless otherwise noted. If you've had a bad experience with a product or company listed, please share your experience so maybe we can find a better option.

(This is a combined list between myself and all those that have posted. It is updated as I find them and as others post them.)

There's a lot of ex-workers who are just a couple of years older than me, who had to make major life changes when they lost their jobs there. Some never recovered and lost everything. I know some who had both spouses working there. They had high paying, specialized jobs that don't exist anywhere else. Then they had to start over in their early 50's - 60's. I feel real bad for anyone who gave their job 100% only to be fazed out by "share holder pressure" I just hope it doesn't get worse.

MagLite Flashlights = USA
Stiletto Hammers = USA?
There's a lot of building products made here. Just wish more tools were

After seeing the previous post about the builder building the Made in USA house and the list of products he used, I thought we could make our own list. So, if you've bought any Made in USA tools or supplies recently please share. I'd be especially interested in hearing about plumbing and electrical fixtures. Maybe we'll be able to save a few jobs.

Anything I list will be, to the best of my knowledge, Made or Assembled in USA by a US owned company unless otherwise noted. If you've had a bad experience with a product or company listed, please share your experience so maybe we can find a better option.


CABINET HARDWARE/SUPPLIES


Columbia Forest Products:
Hardwood plywood

Horton Brasses:
Authentic Reproduction Cabinet and Furniture Hardware

KV Manufacturing Company: Drawer slides, storage products, closet hardware. Everything they make is not made in USA but 80% of their stuff is. One thing I know that is not made here is their MuV undermount slides, they are made in Taiwan. Every side mount slide I've ever bought from them are made in USA.

Drill Bits


W.L. Fuller:
Countersinks, Counterbores, Plug Cutters, Taper Point Drills, Brad Point Drills and Step Drills

Kodiak Cutting Tools: HSS and Carbide Cutting Tools

Montana Brand:
Drill and Driver sets, Diamond Tile Bits, Plug Cutters

Snappy Tools:
Quick Change Chucks, Drill Adapters, Self Centering Bits. McFeelys sells their different sets and I highly recommend them, I uses them everyday.

Insty-Bit:
Quick Change Chucks, Drill Adapters, Self Centering Bits. Their Insty-Lok chuck is by far my favorite and use it instead of the one that came in the Snappy set.

SDS Drill Bits: SDS Masonry Drill Bits

Router Bits and Router Accessories

Eagle America: All their "Eagle Bits" are made in USA. Their "Pricecutter Bits" are made in Twain.

Whiteside Machine Co: Arguably the best router bits you can buy.

Freeborn Tool:
High Quality Shaper Cutters.

Woodhaven:
Misc Router and Shop Accessories

Woodpeckers Precision Woodworking Tools:
Misc Router and Shop Accessories.

Saw Blades

Forrest Manufacturing Company:
High Quality Saw Blades

Imperial Blades: Blades for popular multi tools. I have no personal experience with their blades but they were rated average in the Fine Homebuilding blade review.


I think this is a good start and I'll post more later.

I have a cousin that lives near Evansville, IN. Whirlpool closed a huge plant there a few years ago to take the jobs away from Americans. It makes me PO'd!

Forgot about www.insula-dome.com

InsulaDome skylights, made here on Long Island. They sell 'em at all the local HD's, not sure if they're nationwide yet.
