Mmm. I have nothing against Starrett or anyone else making tools in a foreign market to service that market. But the idea of Foreign made tools coming back to the US makes me pause. If they are Starrett quality, then the folks with the Wal-Mart philosophy of cheaper = better will be pleased. But I think that it's a sign that US business is being held back by government. Think for a moment - a US plant, US technology, that is local to the market (aka no transpacific shipping) has to import tools made in a third country to compete in the market.
