I guess I am still old school.
great tools are still made and sold in the usa every day, but they are not at the bargain table at the swap meet.

Wink Re: tools at swap meets

There was a guy at the Pate swap meet last weekend selling good used Snap On wrenches, sockets, ratchets, and other stuff at great prices (for SnapOn stuff). Picked up 4 sockets for $12.

If you keep on livin', you're gonna get old.
Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
Good livin' will speed it up, but it's worth it.
