IM DOING MY PART!

A couple of weeks ago a fellow worker got ...uhhh...excused from employment.
Reason....going in a different direction.
So...LIKE USUAL I somehow get suckered into taking on more responsability. Do more for the same. You guys know the drill.
So I'm "asked" to take over our little tool crib. I quickly said "hell no!", but alas, I am a loser and eventually accept the added job.
At this point I decided if I'm going to do this job I'm going to do my best and get good at it.
Being a bit pissed about it, I decided to do it right (and be a dick about it). So now all cutters go by me. All speeds and feeds go thru me. All new technology in cutting steel goes thru me.
First thing...ALL AMERICAN! We are currently using 99% mitsubishi cutters. I promise you this is over! I sign for NOTHING but MADE IN AMERICA!
I got a little resistance from fellow workers, suppliers, etc...however, my being pissed about this has been one hell of an advantage. I feel like Patton!
Made in America or get lost! You want the best, you'll get it, but bear in mind, we will do it ALL AMERICAN!
******* The weird part is people seem to be brainwashed into buying foreign crap! Mitsubishi built the engines that bombed perl harbor? WTF! Now I'm supposed to buy my machining supplies from them pffft!
Not only will I only buy American, but I will partner up with any American company that needs my input.
I AM AN AMERICAN TOOLMAKER! The greatest toolmakers on Earth.
Germans...pffft swiss...pffft japs...pffft china I DONT THINK SO!!
Now you boys go to work tommorrow and read the labels...and be ashamed!
I won't be.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
(im confused about iscar...great stuff, owned by an American, built by GODs chosen, ...This might be the exception to my "buy American" rule.)

Go Vinny Go!
Now, how are you going to be sure it was made in America? That is getting darn hard to tell. Who is currently on your list of american made cutter makers?
I buy a lot of stuff from McMaster carr, quite often not tooling but they seem to be able to provide a decent product that is more often than not still made in the USA. I really like opening my shipment of stuff and seeing USA on most of the stuff inside.
