Nothing’s Made Here

I’m looking to buy a new drill.  You would think that a $300 drill from a company called “Milwaukee Tools” would be made in America.  Nope.

Milwaukee, Craftsman, DeWalt, Makita… all made in China now.

It’s no wonder this country is completely screwed.  If we can’t employ people making the basic tooling we need, how do we expect to employ them in a “service based economy” of using that tooling?

Makita is a Japanese company. :)

I'll be damned. I never really thought of it because always associated them with Stan Mikita. :)

Craftsman hand tools are still made in the USA. I check before I buy them.
Power tools, not so much.
