Some of their tools are good for the price so . . .

Why don't you go outside once in a while? You're not dead, just a leg ahead of the rest of us.

Go ride a bike or something.

You realize just about everything that didn't come on the truck (and taken out of your check weekly) is china commie crap, not just HF?

I work at a desk all day and venture out into the shop several times a day. On crutches this week so only outside shit I’ve been doing is cutting my grass, but I’ll be out this weekend for sure being back on my leg. However that being said, I stand by my original statement above about commie china shit.

Keep buying their shit as it helps directly support their red army.

I know what’s made in China and what’s not. It aggravates me when I have to buy something that is made over there as it’s no longer made anywhere else. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against buying foreign made tools like knipex made in Germany. But I don’t like Chinese crap as that country is not a friend of the US like people think. Why feed your enemy that is doing you harm everyday?

Because it's either that, or live in a tent in the woods? Phone, TV, computer, audio stuff, appliances, etc etc. It's not like we can get Bell androids or a zenith 60" flat screen.

My newer HF toolbox is 100 times better built than my old "roller bearing" craftsman boxes.

How do you deal with all the electronic stuff including phones and the computer you're tying on being made in China or Muslim countries? How about the parts in your vehicle?

Pretty hard to not buy stuff made there. I don’t see shoe factories and clothes factories coming back to the US.

A lot of the Crapsman shit is made in China now. Since Sears went under some of the outlets won't honor the lifetime replacement with older tools. I found one that will and the broken US made ratchet I traded got me a piece of shit made in China that slips. I might have to start using HF shit and get a bigger scrap barrel or take out a second mortgage to get into Snap On.

I reach past my American snap on ratchets to get my 120 tooth gear wrench ratchets. Taiwan ftmfw

Reminds me, I heard a comment that buying Taiwan actually "hurts" the Chinese more than buying American, dollar for dollar, it strengthens Taiwan, which is a thorn in China side

I realize you have no choice in a lot of products like I said above, however, you don’t have to dive full retard into purposely buy Chinese made crap like it’s your mission when there’s other choices out there.

Look, there’s definitely a problem when you defend buying commie crap made in China. Think long and hard about that - impossibility for :Gary:

Not all of us want to spend $20k just to have enough tools to work on our personal vehicles every few weeks.

There is no middle ground anymore, husky, kobalt, craftsman, harbor freight are all Chinese. Imo harbor freight is the best out of all of those. Well, at least the most convenient.

Nahh better to buy the import stuff. It is near impossible to get the funk of "please daddybear don't hurt me" out of the tent and sleeping bag material.
