Topic tags/keywords: hand tools made in the usa list

I need a pair of end cutting pliers. Wondering if any are still American made, I googled and was surprised to find this list ;-)

I googled Canada too and found some info, but nothing like the USA list.

I had a look at one on the list…Fishing!!! YEA!!

Ardent Reels a Nice Looking Bass Reel..EVEN Camouflaged so the bass can’t see it…LOL… I guess $180.00 is a reasonable price especially for a guy like me who already has about 20/30 Reels????

I glanced through the list. There was a lot more than I expected, I must say. But don’t say that to loud, it might change.

Bob stuff made in the USA or Canada are about the same quality I think, we say cheaper in US mostly because of the taxes, US has a 6% tax and Canada has 14% tax which makes a big difference.

GMman, the tax is why the whole world dumps their garbage on us. They have taxes on our exports but they get a free ride sending stuff here.i

Roger 40 years ago we were the manufacturer for the world, everything was made here. I remember when we went of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association’s Standards and started using the international junk that is installed today. Makes for a lot of service work for those who know how to fix things ;-)
