This is not earth shattering or news to most anyone,... I despise the fact that it's all but impossible to buy an American made pipe wrench at Lowe's. For the average homeowner mediocre quality tools are apparently OK, but not for anyone that takes their work seriously.

The "Kobalt" line, except for some of the Donaher tool group contract pieces are a total JOKE!! It sickens me to see most all the outside vendors offering clearly substandard products.....

I went to Home Depot and found EXACTLY what I needed from Ridgid, Klein, and a Johnson level.

Lowe's you should be ashamed of yourselves.

You are correct... Sears is a goner. You will be even more upset to know that almost ALL TOOLS.... the names you know and loved..... are made in China now...

IRWIN, DEWALT, VISE-GRIP, MAKITA, DEWALT, HUSKY, CRAFTSMAN, MILWAUKIE......

ALL CHINA.

American corporate greed, profits on wall street, no import tax from our government because the companies pay off crooked politicians, and we, the people, ACCEPTING it.....

These are the reasons why.....

I agree, but most everything in the tools section of most stores is stamped "made in china." Remember the good old days decades ago when a Craftsman tool was good as gold and easily replaceable IF it ever broke? No longer, for Sears is a goner, but you can still find good made in usa tools if you search.

Luckily, I don't need too many more at my age, but those I pass along to the boys will be good ones I and my father have had for decades. There's something mystic about a good tool.
