  • Made in the USA

    After watching a news cast of a contractor that built a house totally built from USA made products. And supplied a list ! I went to my shop and was totally surprised when I could not find 1 USA made product ! When lowes was asked if they would carry these products they said they would special order if need be ! Is'nt it a crying shame we have to special order items made in the USA !!!!
    My shop gets a E- ! What does yours get?
    I understand we have a wide veiwing base here. And I do not mean to offend any of you! I hope you all understand I am not speaking of you or your country. That is unless you are from CHINA!!

      I think it is a crying shame what this once proud country is coming to be. We wonder why there are no jobs to be had and we have to dial 1 for English. I try to purchase clothes made in the USA, it is almosrt impossible. There is a big box store here in the midwest called Menards. They have a sale every so often of made in the USA products. That is when I shop there. I drive an American made car, Chevy. I imagine most of the electronic parts and probably a lot of other parts on it are made outside the USA. Enuf ranting, I could go on and on.

        It sure is a sad thing, that we can't make our own products without charging an arm & a leg for them. Everyone has their own oppinion of why the costs are high for USA products, but, why can't we work at correcting the problem. I just saw an email that was sent to me about Detroit & it's population dropping a tremendous amount over the past few years & most of the population is made up of immigrants. They claim the city has fallen down, buildings empty & deserted for years. When we don't manufacture here, there is no need for the factories. So, where did all those tax dollars go. OUT OF THE USA. Yes, we could go on forever & I have rattled on too much. Maybe someday we will recover. Take Care

          Glad things worked out.

          I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

          Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

          So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
