"I'm curious if anyone here has some american made products worth bragging about? "

My baby is American made,
born and bred in the U.S.A.,
from her silky long hair to her sexy long legs,
my baby is American made.

I have used this product, saw their video and highly recommend it to anyone looking to fix their toilet flange. I liked it because it is code approved...and works like a champ...

Coleman Dual Fuel camping stove. Use Coleman fuel, or if you're in a bind you can use regular gasoline for fuel; either will work to cook those Idaho potatoes, or Texas steak, or that amazing Alaskan salmon. I name 3, but US produced food ranks highly for me.

No one has mentioned my fave - Rock and Roll! Of course Blues, Folk, Bluegrass, Country etc. all sleep in the same beer and tear stained bed...
On to... all the US music legends, past and present. Too many to name, they undoubtably have impacted historical, and current world events, perhaps even the "global psyche," if you'll forgive my creative use of words.

The Electric Guitar. Enough said. US made, I guess, to be in line with the this thread. Even if I wasn't a player, I'd still probably buy a Les Paul! Those of you who know, know.....

Hey how about USG Sheetrock, and joint compound?

Kia ora. GW

Thank you for this thread, this is a great forum. All of Michael McHale Designs' industrial chic lighting, such as our Tribeca Bar Chandelier, are made in NYC, USA. Thanks again for the forum and we think it's a great question to ask for American products worth bragging about. Industrial Style Modern Bar Chandelier

Brookworld, good luck trying to find any decent electronics made here in America. I just bought an iKick501 sound dock from Amazon ($168) and though it sounds incredible it too is made in China.

David, Milwaukee Electric Tool was bought from its Swedish-based owner Atlas Copco in 2005 by the Hong Kong-based Techtronic Industries Company Ltd.

Milwaukee Electric Tool was outsourcing many of its products long before it was bought by Techtronic. For example, during the Amstar ownership, some excellent Milwaukee-branded cordless drills and power screwdrivers were made by Panasonic in Japan.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milwaukee_Electric_Tool_Corporation

Just because production has largely shifted to China, don't conclude Milwaukee products are junk quality. Many are still excellent; some are even the best in their class.

If you're looking for something to blame for Milwaukee Electric Tool changing from being a 100% American firm like it was in grandpa's day (a process begun with its acquisition by sugar company Amstar), then you need look no further than "our" byzantine, arrogant federal government. All private foundations, including the Siebert Foundation named after Milwaukee Electric Tool's founder, were in 1975 under US government direction to divest ownership of companies.

Maglite and Streamlight flashlights. Unquestioned quality. Life time warranties. Unfortunately their technology is not keeping pace with the better Chinese products, and their prices can be quite a bit higher
