recently purchased a small digital level . I was happy to see on the front of the packaging “USA made digital level” . In all honesty I was surprised and pleased to see that I found a tool that was made in my home country.

However, upon further inspection I see there must be an error somewhere….I guess my USA made digital level sensor is Made In China….hmmm

I would not be surprised if China owns the USA company that makes it.

My Snapper lawnmower is ASSEMBLED IN THE USA…..LOL! As China starts to eqalize, their population and cheap labor is aging out with no replacements due to the “one child” policy of the government, companies may start to use our unemployed to make things again

Sounds like legal talk being used by marketing.
Maybe the sensor part is from the USA, but all other parts and assembly in China.

There is a small town in China called Usa. Don’t laugh, the Japanese did it in the 50’s.

Gene’s right, there was such anti Japanese sentiment after the war, a town in
Japan renamed itself yew-saw..USA to avoid it.

It should rub you the wrong way. We exported American jobs because of it. Very sad. My thought went to Usa Japan also.
