Lowes and more Chinese crap!!!

I am painting later today so thought I might get a head up for a change and set my pressure at least at a general setting as I had used that line yesterday. A brand new China made quick disconnect fitting failed open. At $2.98 plus tax, it wont hurt me - but the wasted hour to replace it will. And then there is the line at the returns counter and the snotty returns lady.

Take a look the next time you are in Lowes - try to find something NOT made in China - and Home Depot is the same. Good ol' Black and Decker, a standard for the home owner, made in China. Hitachi, a good Japanese tool company(as well as many other things like power turbines), made in China.

I'd buy good USA made Milton fittings - if I could find them somewhere besides an occasional swap meet.

Am I upset?? Yep (again) I don't have any choice, I have to buy that junk. There aren't any other choices .

Now!! I'm going to go paint!!!!
