Brian this is exactly why I try to make/build everything I possibly can.....well one of the reasons ,that and save my money to buy what I can't build,and when I do buy I do my dam best to buy products made in the US or Canada.
And while we are on this ,I saw on the CBS national news last night how this country's gov and business's computer networks are under constant attack from hackers both individual and gov sponsored from around the world.they stated that the Pentagon fends off 3.5 million hits A DAY!!
.they also told that there are complete company's that have been hacked and built overseas(China was one with multiple factories ) right down to the pressures used to run operating machinery . R& D in these country's use to mean Receive & duplicate.....now they just hack into a company's data base and print out any prints that they want and build it.
