Re:A bargain at twice the price! 5 Months, 1 Week ago

I prefer American made motorcycle and industrial goods as I find for the most part the stuff is heavy duty. Like Hobart dishwashing systems I work on, The older stuff is very high quality. Of Douglas Machine corp. I do warranty work for a lot of companies and the made in U.S.A. is superior with regards to ware wash equipment by far.
I find the best deals for home stuff are on Ali Express but may take months to get. Got a high quality of ISO grips and foot pegs for 1/2 the price of a leading brand name supplier. I guess on line is hit and miss. China makes great items, some heavy duty, some not.
A good friend of mine spends a lot if time in China as a manufacturing inspector for American firms. He has told me items packaged identically can be made from one of many company's located within China.
My experience is in machine tools and I've noticed quality can be all over the place.....hit and miss is an understatement.
