Better to say Darn alive than squashed. I'm sure there are other rebranded ones that might be checked.

I like the fancy spelling in the title!! That could be their premium line of tools. Harbour Freight.
(rolls down window) Pardon me.....do you have any harbour freight?

Sorry that I used the proper spelling of the word harbour.

Is there a proper spelling? I thought it was more of an American vs. different country spelling.

And I'm sure they use Harbor in their legal paperwork, so wouldn't that make it their proper and correct spelling [emoticon]

So they are killing us with the unseen and now with their products.

And some will keep on supporting them!
This is really getting a bit tiresome. Have you gotten rid of your cell phone, you really don't need, it is after all just a convenience? How about the big ol' TV? That microwave? The CPU in your truck? The sounds system in your trailer? Many, many of the electronics you use every day?

Honestly, until you get rid of all those convenience gadgets, and associated China-made parts, you really have no excuse to chastise anyone.

On Edit: It occurs to me that there may actually be fewer China-made parts in my Japanese Honda motorcycle than there are in your USA-assembled Harley. [emoticon]


Free Country, I choose to spend my $$$ on US Made products when I can.

You choose to support {deleted} that's up to you.

But hey YOU do what you want. Please show where I "CHASTISED" anyone.

Shoe fits then wear it I guess.

Sorry, but this comes under the heading of chastisement:

"Sorry to say this but YA GETS WHATS YA GETS BUYING {deleted}

So they are killing us with the unseen and now with their products.

Chastisement: "the act of scolding or punishing someone."

Have you gotten rid of the Chinese-made products in your home, trailer, truck, car, and motorcycle? Most of those products are not necessary and are just fun gadgets, and easily done without. A true patriot, such as yourself, would have no trouble divesting himself of products from the godless communist state...well, unless they are fun, then it's okay. I guess you don't mind supporting them if it's stuff YOU want. Wink wink nudge nudge.



On Edit: I'm still a member of the B&W hitch fanboi club. [emoticon]

Helpful post. Thanks for the info. I have my Honda SUV up on all fours right now with 3T HF stands for a month. [emoticon] Was just going to change the oil on my other Porsche SUV using 6T HF stands. [emoticon] Last thing I'd want is to be under a 5,000lb vehicle with questionable stands?

I also have some Craftsman stands, though I'm fairly certain they weren't made in the U.S. either?

I think the real problem here is that the moderator does not exert enough control over what is an obvious racial/cultural slamming and the root of this displeasure has not much to do with the perceived or real concern about the product itself. There are way too many of these types of posts that are allowed to appear and continue to a point where things get out of hand. There needs to be more control by the powers to be rather than having the rest of us having to deal with it.
