I have pretty much given up trying to buy American, I will when I can but with everything and the stinkin box in came in being made in China it's just too frustrating trying to avoid imports. You are certainly right about the Chinese being perfectly capable of building quality tools and products IF we are willing to pay for that quality. I finally broke down and bought a couple of the new Chinese Vise Grips to use for abusive work so I could save my US made ones, I have got to admit I was surprised to find that they have given up little in quality. It's the same with lots of other well known brand names and some of the "pro" quality tools are now made in China, but not at Harbor Freight prices!
