    A lot of shoes are made in Thailand. It's kind of cool the system they have. I always pictured big factories with women and children chained to machines making shoes, but that's not how it always is. I was in a villiage in northeast Thailand where a family would buy a box of shoe tops and a box of shoe bottoms. They'd sit around their hut on rice straw mats gluing the tops and bottoms together and then sell them off to another family somewhere else who would take the top/bottom combination and glue a bow on the toe. Some other family had already bought cut out leather pieces and sewed them into the tops and another family altogether would carve the heels out of cork or some such.

    There were women and children working to make the shoes, but they were enterprising free agents who owned their part of the system.

    I don't know how it is in China.
    From now on I will only buy cars that are a silver/grey color. Then I can make all body repairs with Duct Tape.

    Liking tools is NOT a weakness, it is an attribute!

    I found a better deal in this one on Amazon
    Read the reviews and took a cheaper gamble. So far it works great.
    I have this same one and am very happy with it.

    I got two of the HF drill press clamps when I upgrade my drill press. I really like them. They clamp well, and they hold things on the table well. I'm actually impressed with how big they open to accept large stock in the drill press.

    Yea, especially for drilling thin sheet metal. A regular drill will catch and twist it into a mess.

    Any input on their winches ?
    Like, How "Bad" are their "Bad Land" (TM) winches ?
    $170 off a 12K winch, now $330.
    (Plus some sort of mount)

    I don't have a need for a continuous duty one, just once in a while.
    If I get it I will almost certainly put a front receiver on the truck, for the option of GOING THROUGH or BACKING OUT.
    With a trailer on... sometimes through may be the only way.

    Any thoughts on the practicality of a lighter (weight) one ?
    Somehow swapping a HEAVY winch into position between front and rear when in mud doesn't look like FUN.
