You're right. Like other companies, they were bought by a big conglomerate that has plants in Canada and Mexico

I found something it will not work on, the 1 1/16 inch lug nuts on my F250. I had a flat tire and I just had to try it.

Time to pony up the big bucks for the Snap-on product! That's really supposed to be a monster.

....depending on how long they've been on, that often requires an 18" breaker bar and occasionally a 4-5 foot cheater on that as well to bust 'em loose. Now, if you had aluminum wheels, then it would "only" be the 13/16" nuts. But of course those wheels would be stuck to the hub unless you had used anti-sieze on the center hole and the hub below the studs .

I'm kinda with the comments Daniel made, although I do have several cordless tools......drills, jig saw....lighter duty stuff.

I just can't see heavy duty tools, like impacts, sawzalls, circular saws, impact hammers, etc. being cordless. They seem to either be unwieldy or the battery life is very short. It can be a hassle to keep changing batteries.

Most power tools are made somewhere overseas, but Milwaukee does make some tools here; they have a plant here in Mississippi.
