Impact driver sets

So, the last three or four years I have made an effort to purchase american made products. I could go to harbor freight and buy an impact driver set, fabrique en chine, right now. I have spent an hour looking for one of these here in town,

All of the impact driver sets I can find in town today are made in china...sad for me. next stop is at pawn shops see if I can find a snap on or other brand.

bummer, two three four hours for something I could go to HF and have on the "now" plan.

end of rant

thank you, william

That tool is such a basic design I doubt you'll find much difference in quality between a US made or China made. The only difference will be the US one will be 3 times the price. I'm still using one from 40 years ago.

What really irks me is when I see on a box "Hecho in China"

Why not order the Proto online?

Round House in Oklahoma makes a good pair of overalls, by the way.
