I started this blog and intend to invite any who will contribute; The predominant purpose is to review and promote products made in the USA.

If you have suggestions or would like to submit a company or product review, leave it in comments here, or send an email to mhardig at gmail dot com.


  1. My 8th grade GT student recenly came home and asked me to find 10 things that are made in the USA. In the living room and kitchen it was very tough - almost impossible. In my bedroom on the other hand, easy-peasy. ZIPPO, Most of my AMMO, some knives, Oakley Sunglasses. Most of my weapons. Then in the garage even more american made items. So maybe there is some hope? The way I see it - alot the things that matter, are all built in the USA. Nice blog BTW.

    Keep up the good work

    Take care,

  2. You need to add Starrett to your list. I still pay extra for made in America. You can feel the difference in their micrometers as well as other fine tools. Where I work, they buy Mititoya, and you can definitely tell the difference in feel and quality.Nice blog by the way.

  3. In Gabriel Garcia Marquez 1962 novel In Evil Hour, he has 2 villagers drafted into the police force to stop libels being posted on citizen's doors. One looks at his carbine and aske the ohter "what kind did you get?" "It's a Madeinusa" is the reply.

  4. I meant to give you this a while back:

    Allows for faster stacking and palleting of cargo container items, weighs, balances, prints a weight ticket and shoves it all inside.

    My niece's husband invented it. Tell me what you think!

  5. I'd like to see you keep this going. Here's a site for the only kerosene lanterns still made in this country:
