Everything depends on how long it takes them to hop on the phase three train. Global economy works this way. IMO. Ron

RonThis is very true, But like you said quality isn't free. But at the same time as the quality improves the cost goes up. So China may have improved quality after they jump on the phase three train. But they may still produce cheap junk just to keep some things affordable
In Europe there are a lot of manufacturers that make tools and machines in China and India with European exigencies. In the case of imported measurement tools, must pass controls of quality and homologations through official organisms. The imported machines and tools must pass technical inspection and homologation in security matter , precision, etc. In addition, the importer must fix a local company to each country (European Union) for technical attendance and repairs and the importer must give a two years (noninferior) guarantee that cover the premature wearing down or the manufacture defects. Please, can you explain me how is the process in USA?
Hi, I am a new member here in England. We are have suffered the almost complete decimation of our engineering industry, but, as a result of this I am very lucky in that 25 miles or so down the road, we have a massive dealer in every tool imaginable from lathes and mills , Shadowgraphs, to micrometers, twist drills, etc. You name , they have it, the whole shooting match, , I believe you would say and usually at a very good price!!! You guys in the States may care to know the the former Moore and Wright factory in Sheffield ( world famous for mikes, etc. ) is now a Walmart!! I look forward to my new membership with interest, ta ta for now,Noz.
