From what I've found, they don't exist anymore. I don't get it why a company hasn't (re)started making them in the USA. I know it's cheaper to get em made in China or Mexico, but there are a lot of people I see asking online where to find a made in USA cordless. I would put money that if a company established a USA made cordless tool line, they would have a following, even at a significantly higher price. They would have the full market share of USA made cordless tools... why hasn't this happened yet?

All USA made stuff, is made overseas.

Even the venerable Milwaukee is a shadow of it's former self.

You think enough people would pay more for something that would probably be no better than its foreign counterpart that a company would or could become profitable?

What are you smoking?

People buy Redwing shoes, Ford, and Snap-On ... yeah, i'm pretty sure there are enough people who would buy American, even if the only difference was it was made in America and nothing more. I paid almost $40 for a spring punch... cause it was made in America. I'm sure i'm not the only one.

I prefer the grape flavored cigarillos myself.

And if the company that you suggest existed and thrived I bet it would be just a matter if time before it to moved its manufacturing overseas.

Yeah I would totally buy a $700 "American" made cordless drill. :rolleyes:

O'Pleeeeez.

And don't tell me Ford's are made in America.. they're assembled in America from parts made overseas.

Everyone has to make a few bucks. Mostly it's the dirt bag corporations in the USA.

It's not like the pigs pay a little less in say... Mexico or China. I'm betting a M18 hammer drill costs them like $9.00 bucks.

They aren't good people. Hopefully they will pay one day.

Greedy dirtbag corporations. Because they moved their manufacturing to China, I got a M18 Fuel drill (that has done all that I need and more day after day) for probably a third of what it would cost if it were made in the ol' Red White and Blue. Now, I have a tool that works great, and more money to spend on other things I want or need, thereby increasing my standard of living, while also allowing me to offer a lower price to customers, who can then spend their savings on other made in China garbage. Dirty scum of the earth.

And the Chinese guy who is making a measly $.75 per hour in that factory is thrilled because he has tripled his income from the $.25 per hour that he was making hand planting rice, and can now feed his family. Evil capitalists.

After 6 months, they feel just like the Danner Quarry's I had prior. Hope they feel like the 6 month Quarrys for a couple more years though at the price I paid. :bangin:

Im so invested in my current cordless setup Id never change brand or voltage. Not sure if Im alone here but Id rather replace a tool or battery every now and then instead of jumping ship just for a Made in Oosuh stamp.
