This is a FANTASTIC report. I wonder if there are any details, as in, even though the final price is 1% more, are they able to keep pretty much similar profit margins as competitors buying material from overseas?

I wonder what the Lennar’s, DR Horton’s, KB’s out there think of this.

Thanks for posting.

Cool!! Now they need to put together a list for us consumers of consumer products that are made in America with American parts and labor so that all of us can be better shoppers (and Americans).

How about a list of American wood working tools and sundries.We could put it together right here on Lumber Jocks.We could have a running list we all could add to.When you buy a wood working product check to see were it is made and if it is made in America and you can verifi it post it to the list.I got the first one, Lee Craft 0 clearance inserts, great product well made about $25 made right Georgia.

Great idea. That could be a forum all on it’s own. I wouldn’t want to exclude other countries with good stuff, so I would entitle it ”NOT MADE IN CHINA”

My first one on the list would be Klein hand tools….......Sold in Home Depot, made in the USA
