I buy these things on eBay in orange made in China... exact same materiel and design and less than half the price. Face it, even your underwear is made in China and Vietnam.

Look at the label on your underwear and see where they are made.... look at the label in your shoes and see where they are made.... look at your car see where it or what countries the parts were imported from. That "American refrain" is old already, unless you're Trump who is on his way out.

I do what I can to buy American tools. But you are advocating to buy a Chinese clone to a silly product that was designed by a very small American company in Georgia. They came up with the design, and you're trying to save a few dollars to buy a ripoff. Worse, you're trying to get other people to do it too. You may as well spit in the face of the designers.
It's not like you need several of these things and it's not even that expensive. Stop being cheap and spend the extra money to put your cash in the pocket of the person who deserves it, the designer.
By the way, my boots are made in Oregon, and my car is made mostly in America, I checked before I bought it. And they were still inexpensive in comparison.

" my car is made 'mostly' in America", check where your cell phone including its case were made. "Buy American"... like a Trump tie? No reason to pay extra money for a 'logo' when its the exact same thing. The "Be American/buy American" refrain is old, worn out and really nothing more than pseudo patriotic pap.

On his way out? Lol. Try having a look at the letter sent to Chuck Schumer by a Demonrat. Outlines how much better things are now than the last 8 years under Obumshit. He's not going anywhere.

Lol, read the reviews your Chinese crap. Threads jacked, thin orings breaking, overall junk. I'll pay the extra few buck because I'm not a cheap bastard, and I like to know I can depend on my equipment.

Or be smarter and buy products from whoever has the greatest comparative advantage. Then everyone wins.

Here, here! Just because so much stuff these days is made in China doesn't mean we should just throw in the towel and give up. If anything, we should make an extra effort to buy American, simply to move more production home. China is losing its low-cost labor advantage (good news: they are also about to lose their shipping advantage -- as US taxpayers will no longer be subsidizing the cheap shipping of Chinese products to the US to the tune of $1 per package under an outrageous and antiquated postal treaty) , and at the very least we should encourage manufacturing that absolutely needs that to move to more friendly democratic countries such as India, or even to Mexico, if only to help prop up our neighbor and help it from descending further into a failed narco-state. But, that said there is much can be cost-effectively made in the US, and this will increase as automation advances. At least then the revenues are circulating in the US, and even with automation, US employees will be hired who in turn can spend more on US products. It's a virtuous circle that we all should be encouraging, even if it costs us a bit more. The irony is that in my own experience, buying cheap knock-offs usually costs more in the long run, because they soon break and we end up buying the higher-quality US product after all. That doesn't even factor in all the wasted time and frustration dealing with the broken junk.
