Re: Made In USA Product List


I actually had the pleasure of doing a set of stairs last week with rough sawn red oak boards and wrought head nails. Nails were from

Tremont Nail in Mass.

There's a lot of building products made here. Just wish more tools were
Unfortunately, Stiletto was sold to a foreign company a few years ago and they've moved most, if not, all their production to China.

It's only my opinion but I think Whirlpool is in a tough position. From the things I've read, they seem to be one of the few that are interested in keeping production here and have filed a complaint with the Commerce Department about "dumping" from manufacturers like LG and Samsung.

Re: Made In USA Product List


Sounds like a very provincial approach and severely limits the possibilities for better options. Do I have to get rid of my treasured Fein (made in Germany) that has only recently been offered to the price conscious U.S. market? The properties have prompted a lot of of cheaper U.S. knock-offs.

The "Made in the U.S." label can be meaningless because the products could be assembled using 90% imported elements. Some more responsible governments require a difference between "Made In" and "Assembled In".

The most rediculous statement is "Imported from Detroit". The Buick Regal is an older Opel and not a U.S. designed car.

That is false. If a product is only 10% US made, they are breaking the law if they use a Made in USA label. Complying with the Made in USA Standard

Re: Made In USA Product List


So it goes,,,upsetting & unfortunate. Just before Whirlpool took over Maytag, Maytag closed the doors on the mfg plant in Galesburg, Ill and those 1400 jobs flew south to Reynosa, Mex, obviously affecting those Maytag workers but a whole support network of local suppliers, local tax base and local services that previously provided things to those 1400 workers and their families. Thank God for Bill Clinton & NAFTA because now Mexico has hundreds of thousands of jobs that used to be OURS,,,WTF

Re: Made In USA Product List


I can't say for sure that their tools are made in the USA, but I bet they are.

And I sure have been enjoying the coping foot the last couple of days.

And the clamps also.

The hammer will need to be replaced soon so I figured I would stop by the supply house and just buy another one and keep it as back up and use it on Saturday. When I got there they had the Plumb I had been using and also a Estwing that looked nice. Checked them both out. Similar in price. Estwing is made in USA. Plumb is foreign, if I remember correctly China. So now I am the owner of a new Estwing.

Ok, firstly Estwings site is example #1 of why doing your whole site in Flash sucks.

Secondly, I have always rolled with Estwing, love 'em. I just picked up a 16oz ripper for finish work, got tired of my framer for all the small stuff.

I was working with a crew a few back and one of 'em when they saw that hanging asked if my Grand Dad knew I had his hammer. laugh it up fatman I hope you brought your slippers for joist dancin'.

Re: Made In USA Product List


Is there anything we can do to make a company start making their products 100% in America? If we all call and tell them we will pay more for american made do you think they would do it?
