I buy from Harbor Freight knowing that they aren't the best, nor even the middle ground in quality...

Also know that ISO-9000 is gone out the window with too many bean counter run companies and wonder who is minding
the ISO-9000 qualification and sustaining of member ship function these days.

China is going to have their products banned across the board if this keeps up. Okay with me, as it is needed at this time to rattle them and *US* before someone is killed.
