Hi,

I'm in the market for a new cordless drill. I was looking for info and found this site - and these forums, what a resource!

Anyhow, I can't seem to find a cordless drill that's made in the USA. I've looked everywhere and I thought I'd find at least one, but no dice. Even Milwaukee makes their cordless drills abroad.

Have I missed any? Isn't there a single cordless drill made in the USA anymore?

Thanks,

Sam

Fortunately or not, depending on the product almost nothing is truly American anymore. The global economy has made it not cost effective to produce solely in one country anymore. With the tariffs imposed on American exports it was necessary for domestic companies to import/export parts and/or labor.

With that said, Just look for a good quality drill like Dewalt,Bosch,or Porter Cable.

Snap-on has a cordless drill made in the USA. It is a 1/2" drive and is quite expensive.
