After running into the same issues finding American made starters and alternators, I starting using a local rebuilder. He knows that I want American made whenever possible. His stuff lasts for years, I get a good product at a fair price. It sits well with me that I'm paying for American labor.
That is a great idea! Will go in that direction next time. Have a great vender local too. 馃憤

be safe, schick

John Beckner, up in Billings, MT does this stuff. He's a member here, but I don't know what his logon is.

The biggest thing that needs to be gotten under control is the med issue. We should have all of our medications made in the US. When a country like China can't be trusted to not use lead in kids toys or make pet food that won't kill your pet it should make people think about the medications they are taking

I'm still thinking that the coronavirus was in/on something that the zipperheads sent here. It made it into too many places, too fast. I'm still wondering how it made it onto US Navy ships as well, had to have gotten on during a resupply.

Fair trade is very different from free trade. We have not had fair trade in a very long time. If as a society we have decided that certain rules for workplace safety, people's rights and freedoms, material integrity, and environmental behavior are important, our trading partners must be held to that same standard. If they - for whatever reason - are not able or capable of meeting those standards, they should be subject to tariffs to offset the costs to domestic companies for meeting those rules. Otherwise we are simply outsourcing the pollution, poisons, treatment and injuries from a place that is not accountable or immediately visible. Classic "NIMBY" behavior...

I would - and have - gladly paid more for a higher quality product. The decades long "chase to the bottom" on cost and price has rendered the high quality option unavailable on a plethora of products without extensive searching or dramatically high pricing due to limited market access and commensurately low sales volume. We as consumers are often offered a choice between cheap crap and prettier cheap crap with the expectation of frequent replacement of the product as it fails in service. The trade war/trade stress we were having prior to Covid might be painful in some ways, but it needed to happen 30 years ago.

yeah, goody buys snap on, mac, Williams, Blackhawk, sk, etc. more bullschmidt
Sorry to break this news to you.
Harbor Freight has higher gross sales than Snap On.
Considering the cost difference is about 10:1, that means there about 10X more Harbor Freight tools being sold.

Apple, Lenovo and one other manufacturer build computers in the US.
Yeahhhh...kind of. They perform assembly tasks with parts sourced from China, Taiwan and Japan. Intel still has CPU foundries here but at some point, greed will transform their business model and they will likely reduce their capacity to building prototypes, etc to source to companies like TSMC to manufacture for them.
