I like to buy American made durable goods, very hard thing to do nowadays...

July 10, 2019 04:28PM
It breaks my heart that American manufacturing jobs have been moving south of the border & overseas (China). I try to buy Made in America products but it's near impossible to do so. Sam Walton would turn over in his grave if he knew about the dealings of the company he established with the motto buy "Made In America" goods. Wal Mart is now being joked about by changing the name to China Mart...LOL

It is very sad to hear of the demise of the Tesoro Electronics Co....my purchase of several brand-new Tesoro metal detectors did not help the company any. I am a big fan of these fine instruments. I also like White's products and my recent purchase of 2 new metal detectors is not making an influx in their sales quota.

All of which brings me to this realization, it is very much a global market no matter what you are interested in buying. So, as far as metal detectors go, I went and bought a new in the box Nokta Fors Relic. It is quite the crackling machine, very hot but at the same time well mannered, I have found coins down to 8 inches deep and just recently found a gold wedding ring for a friend. His son had lost it a week prior to me finding it in a wheat field. It was found within 5 minutes because they marked the spot where he lost it. My settings for for finding the ring were as follows... DI2 ....95 Sens.... ID Mask 05.... imask 01....Iron Volume 02...the rest factory setting. I took off my wedding ring and laid it down in the wheat stubble and run the coil ( 11x7 ) over it and it the Relic screamed over it. very shortly after I recieved the same signal and it was the lost ring...very happy family at this point.

And the point of this post is about being more open minded when it comes to buying "Made in America" products. My wife drives a Subaru Forester, nice car, and I drive a Ford F150. The Subaru gets better gas mileage. Just my thoughts for today, feel free to respond to this post.

My opinion: No, they really don't. ... An AT Max would be a bad decision.

Actually, I found the mid-to-late 70s to be some of the better years.

I learned by example to shop for quality-made products early in life.
