    Let's make a list of all the Brands made in the United States Of America.

    I want to start a new wave of support for our family, friends, community, and country. The Good Ole USA!

    If they hate us so much that they are willing to kill our people with disease and then threaten to cut off our much needed medication, then it's time We The People fight back!... with our hard earned money.:handshake:

    Let's make a complete list of things that we don't need to buy from China.

    If we make it here, then let's buy it here. Simple as that.
    Get the word out it's time to make a stand.


    Post it up. Product, Brand and where it's made. It's time we make a difference.:handshake:

    I thought Harley's were until I talked to my elderly uncle who owned a harley shop for years. I'll have delve deeper. Good idea. Lots of stuff is outsourced quietly

    I think they recently shipped some production overseas but I can’t remember why.

    Snap On, Mac, Matco, Cornwell. Remember this when you visit Harbor Freight.
    Toyota & Honda with the caveat that profits go to Japan.
    Stihl!

    This is the hard part. I went to rescue a log trailer 20 plus years ago. The ex driver stole all the tools out of the truck, and I had to flag down the snapon truck. Still remember. 27 bucks for one 7/16 box end wrench. I personally can't afford that, but would like to support them still.
    Maybe some massive deregulation can help them in the future. I will happily return

    One thing to consider, there are a ton of used tools, wrenches and pretty much everything else that are great to use!

    I get it for sure, especially stuff you may lose. I've spent a ton on Snap On tools over the years & the quality & warranty is there for sure, but it ain't cheap! My son & grandson will still be able to use them though, so there is that.

    S&k tools are made in America, I’ve been buying them. Good enough for me.

    Snap On has been outsourcing some things overseas in recent years.

    For clarification...are we looking for brands/products not made in China? Or 100% made in USA?
