I saw that too and had a similar response.

What really bothered me is how they're trying to imply that they're this good American company in spite of the fact they outsource production to China.

The one example i am aware of, but there are probably more, is Vicegrips. For years they were made in DeWitt, Neb. If you have some older ones it says so right on the side. No longer. I understand the Chinese ones are crap compared to the old ones, that the teeth on the jaws don't hold up.

Yes on both counts. The Vise Grips on the Bridegeport made me cringe.

And Chinese Vise Grips that don't work like the old ones make me cringe too.
