Made in USA Tools - Support America: Buy American Tools

You might think that American-made tools have totally disappeared from the market. Big manufacturers like Black and Decker and Sears have shipped labor overseas, and many medium-sized American tool manufacturers have outsourced parts of their assembly lines. Here are a few holdouts who are still taking advantage of high quality American labor and supplies. This list is not exhaustive.
