Where can I get a decent AMERICAN made set from 1/8" up to 1/2". Not interested in a combination of SAE & metric.

Thanks!

You're lucky. You don't have to buy it...it's on backorder.

You asked for quality.... You can buy Irwin all day for $150 or less.. Greenfield starts around $4000... Quality costs, trust me, I've spent allot on drills, taps & dies & end mills... First time you use a quality tap you won't want to use a cheap one again...


I believe you, but I would be using it mostly to clean up threads.

Check out stillmadeintheusa.com. Several companies, some sell on Amazon.

It really sucks that I as an American can't afford American made products that i would love to purchase.
