Wright they are!

Wright is what is marked on the tools. And they are very nicely made. Overall, it's really a great product from Adventure Designs even though it is a bit spendy but that's got to be because the US made tools are going to be way more expensive than Chinese made.

Hate to sound too jingoistic here, but just when does one start to realize that keeping jobs in the US involves paying a bit more for US labor? Not that buying a tool roll is going to change our balance of payments problems with China but philosophically when and where does one start supporting US made products at a sacrifice out of our own pockets? Addiction to cheap foreign labor has already ruined numerous US companies and industries and everybody realizes it. Somehow the next President (whether O or R) must find a theme and an economic course of action that will start the reversal.
