Re: Under desk keyboard tray

Here are a couple promising choices: 1. iMovR Stowaway Ergonomic Keyboard Tray I love iMovR's transparency as they have a whole page dedicated to talking about how they make things in the USA. In addition to this model, they offer a variety of others for different desk types. 2. Ergonomic Keyboard T...

Cuckoo Rice Cooker Made in Korea

I normally recommend Zojirushi for rice cookers made in Japan, but this is the lowest I’ve seen for a NMIC rice cooker. It’s from South Korean brand Cuckoo.

Cuckoo Rice Cooker

It’s $75 and made in Korea.

Wiper Blades Not Made in China

The wiper blades on my very old Infiniti finally gave way (I mean, the rubber completely disintegrated and flew off), so I bit the bullet and went to Amazon to buy new ones. As I've come to expect by now, the top ranking Amazon recommendations are the fake brand names like AUTOBOO, MOTIUM, AECIWELL,...

Re: Snow Tube not made in China

lol, unfortunately it's a fact of life here where I live, so we make the best of it by building snowmen, sledding, skiing, skating, etc. But I agree--after about 20 minutes playing in the snow I'd rather be on a beach with a nice cool drink in my hand. :mrgreen:

Snow Tube not made in China

I've been trying for a few years to find a sled, toboggan, or snow tube not made in China. It seemed like a completely impossible task. Every single product I found was made in China. There was a posting on Slickdeals for a cheap foam sled being sold on Walmart for $15. You can tell just by looking ...

Re: Help me change my parents’ opinions on China

Thanks for your post. I think it brings up an important point. As frustrating is it is, I don't really blame ordinary citizens in China for eating up the propaganda that the CCP pushes on them. They have been raised from infancy to not question the omnipotence of The Party. They simply lack the abil...

Re: Pliers made in the USA

Sounds great--thanks Paul. I'll definitely be taking you up on that. Coincidentally, I noticed that Amazon has dropped the price for Knipex Diagonal Cutters to its lowest price since 2020, for those readers in the USA who are interested in a good deal. There are actually a number of Knipex tools for...

Re: Pliers made in the USA

Wow, thanks Paul! It's amazing how so many of these companies exist and make superior tools, while American consumers just go back to the brands they've trusted for years like Stanley, Dewalt, Craftsman which are all made in China now and other than the logo and the color have no connection whatsoev...
