Here’s another link: http://www.stillmadeinusa.com/tools.html

This is a topic that’s near and dear to my heart. I try when possible to buy American, but sometimes it’s just not possible because the price difference is so great. I don’t mind paying the premium, up to a point. And when I do, I expect superior customer support and product quality. One thing I hate is the outsourcing that goes on with American companies, because you have to really look at the box to find that “Made in China” tag on it.

There’s a hierarchy that I follow when looking for tools. I’ll buy USA first, then Canadian, English, or German second. I’ll buy French before I buy Taiwan, and when all else fails, sigh . . . . China.
