What's Made in America? Tools and Companies [2022]

What's Made in America? Tools and Companies [2022]

Made in the USA tools and equipment have always been a hot commodity, we wanted to take stock of what’s actually made here in America and celebrate the companies who are putting American workers to work. There are two problems with that, of course. One, we can’t possibly include everybody, and two, the rules keep changing regarding when you can actually say a product or tool is Made in America.

    It’s pretty sad you made this video 11 months ago right after ideal shut down western forge who made almost everyone’s adjustable wrench, screw drivers and pliers. Ideal killed them. And ideal just sold sk to a Chinese company last week.

    Wilde is pronounced will-D. Not wild.

    Wilton sold out moving all the vises, c clamps and hammers and normal individual would buy to China. No homeowner is going to buy 1500 dollar machinist vise.

    You forgot mayhew. They make punches, chisels pry bars and other striking tools for many companies.

    Most of the companies you listed don’t make any American made tools anymore. Such as crescent, matco, and half a dozen more.

    LOVED THIS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Jon Weber on January 17, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    I just looked at power tools today. Most of the Dewalt tools are made in china. The china made tools have their ‘made in china’ stickers under the battery. 1 or 2 were made in mexico. And a couple were made in USA with global materials. If there was a brand that solely made their tools in the USA, I would buy them.

  9. Vance Rosentreter on January 17, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    Look forward to boycotting communist companies/countries, and I’m happy to pay the extra price.

  10. Alexander Ort on January 17, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    Proto is owned by URREA they are Mexican owned. URREA IS HIGH-END tool brand. USA is not the only place where good tools are made people.

  11. Gregory Jones on January 17, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Heads up, Billerica is pronounced "Bill -Rick-Ah", I know, not how it’s spelt, but that’s how it pronounced in Mass.

  15. CS Ghost Animation on January 17, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    Chinese manufacturing is so fucking awful. Trust me, I’m Chinese. Don’t do it. I don’t care how cheap it is.

    currently sitting with my stitched up leg after my jigsaw exploded.

  16. Bob Thompson on January 17, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    john deer is usa made but they have made it so that they break and then only they can fix them and you have to get the huge tractor towed too them even if its just a small easy fix and the computer is making the thing not run. I love john deer but thats not ok.

  17. Michael Hall on January 17, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    I work construction and don’t mind paying a little more for tools made anywhere other than China. Just today my local Home Depot missed out on at least 300$ because I’m looking for a cordless hammer drill and every brand I picked up said Made In China. With this ongoing plandemic I refuse to buy anything made in China.

  18. V. Licc. on January 17, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    America for ever

  20. Tyler Snyder on January 17, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    You included too many companies or brands who just barely make only a few products here, any number of companies with serious American production could have gone in their place

    Council Tool
    Ames / True Temper

    Norseman drill
    Barco industries

    I bought an metric Swanson speed square in Germany, "Made in USA" for a Premium price. Around 50 Dollars.

    I had never seen before something before like this in this kind of quality.
    Nearly all scales where off by 1.5 mm and it was not even square. You cound see it with the bare eye. Made in USA was never a sign for quality.

  22. Mike C. on January 17, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    Randall Knives, made in Orlando Florida

  23. Jon Weber on January 17, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    The Milwaukee tools I saw were made in china.

  24. Al Dusty on January 17, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    I just wish Milwaukee was an American company

  25. Leon Guyot on January 17, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    S.K. Tools has just been sold to the Chinese, not sure if that includes all of Ideal Tools? It’s a terrible shame, because I Love my SK Tools.

  26. Pm Mp on January 17, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    Craftsman is made in Taiwan, according to the new v series label

  27. Keen Scents on January 17, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Swanstrom makes good but very expensive side cutters, Sioux Tools makes some downright decent air tools that stand up to regular production.

    Last week I needed a new drill, I went to Lowes and looked at all the drills they sell. DeWalt, Craftsman, Ryobi, etc, None were made in USA. I might as well try some Harbor Freight tools. What really annoys me is, US companies having tools made in China, then charging top dollar for them as if they were made here with higher paid labor.

  30. Robert W. Capo on January 17, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    MTD also owns the Troy Bilt brand in addition to Cub Cadet. It’s interesting to see which companies really own the brands we have.

  32. Steval204 on January 17, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Shouldn’t be allowed to state “made in the USA with global materials.”

    It should say “packaged in the USA” so we can mark the price up 5x.

  33. 🧰📐🛠JamesP🔧⚙☘ on January 17, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    I have two "Buck" knives that are made in China. You have named a few companies that do not manufacture exclusively in the USA.

  34. Roger Miguel on January 17, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    I’ll support countries that work well with the USA, I will not support Chinese products. This is also my standard with clothing products.

  35. Josey Walesa on January 17, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    There are several of these companies that only a smaller percentage of there tools in America and most of them made in overseas plants like China. Milwaukee , craftsman, Dewalt, just to name a few. Many of these companies just put token plants in the U.S. just to save face. Some of the other plants are on the up and up being True American manufacturing. Maybe some are seeing the War drums beating in the pacific with China? They wouldn’t be moving plants back here just to be patriotic. There to greedy 💰$$ 🏦$$$ to do that. John deer has huge plant in Germany that I drove by. This is deceiving to say theses are American made products. 
    So you make one or two tools in America out of 10 or 20 pieces? Lansing tools are true American made tools out of Michigan .

    Funny how the best products seem to come from Asia companies that both build and assemble their products in the USA. When the design and quality is managed in other countries it seems to be better.

    My lawnmower engine was built by Honda in Lewisville SC and assembled in China by Husqvarna. Design and Quality is managed in Japan and Sweden, Honda does have R&D in Lewisville.

    My 1st Toyota was built in Japan but assembled in Kentucky, since then they’ve been built in Indiana. Unsure if the engines are built in the US or Japan as there are multiple sites but definitely Sienna assembly is done in the USA since 1997.

    Any product I’ve purchased that were USA Only has been good quality but often maintenance costs are much higher, and reliability has been an issue.

    There are cheaper products sure but the trend is Asian companies manufacturing in the USA 🇺🇸 is a better product than purely 🇺🇸.

  38. CC CLC on January 17, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    video made by a tool, maybe my mistake i was expecting a handtool video not lawnmowers

  39. Mustang Guru on January 17, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    Craftsman labels are 2 different border colors around their logo. One is black and one is white , not sure but I think the black border is still part of the old sears branding.

  40. Sandy Charlton on January 17, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    I am researching mechanic tools I keep coming back to a small company wright tools quality made in the USA life time warranty tools at reasonable prices. I cant afford Mac or Snap On prices but I don,t want to buy cheap chinese junk either. I want to buy wrench & a socket set that will last the rest of my life

  41. JOHN Gallati on January 17, 2022 at 9:59 pm


  42. TENtop S on January 17, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    Dewalt tools are made in china now 2021

  43. John Salors on January 17, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    Put Donald J Trump back in office and it will continue to grow and do more work in the USA

  44. chris white on January 17, 2022 at 10:03 pm

    Your really stretching the term "power tools"

  45. MAGA MAN on January 17, 2022 at 10:04 pm

    Pretty much all of these companies have products made in china. In some cases, the majorityu of their products are made in china. Now they are claiming that products that are 100% chinese made, but assembled in america are american made.

  46. Dmitri Ruban on January 17, 2022 at 10:04 pm

    Although most of Husky tools are made in China, some such as larger air compressors are made in the USA.

  47. Indiana Brandon on January 17, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    Well SK is now off that last 🤦🏼‍♂️ so sad

  48. Bob Thompson on January 17, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    sad face. I like Milwaukee tools and I didnt like dewalt until I just found out that dewalt is a USA made tool. And I know that Ryobi Ridged and Milwaukee are all the same Chinese company. The question is are the parts USA made? But its still better than all Chinese made.

  49. Shooting sports Transparency on January 17, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    For most "made in America" products and tools, made in America only refers to the paper packaging in which the Chinese products are replaced in after arriving in America before US sellers tripling the price nowadays even Milwaukee tools are 100% Chinese

  50. Gunderman on January 17, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    Typical governmental labeling mumbo-jumbo. Either the tools are made in the USA, or they’re not! If any part of any tool is made by the American-murdering, covid creating chicoms, then refuse to buy it.
