I bought a 6 pack of oil filters for the Tacoma a year ago, Toyota changed oil and filters for the first couple years tuned out you need a special filter cup to get it off. LOL I bought Fram brand filters “Made in China” now not happy about that anyway I changed the oil today the smaller o ring is wrong sloppy loose. mad

So what wrong, junk or short lived treasures have you ran into recently that Made In China has blessed you with?

Fram Filters are about as bad as they get. You would e better off using an old sock.

Bought a NLA chainsaw top end new on amazoon, CHEAP too.
Played mail man, cleaned parts, scrounged parts, reassembled,
primed it and started on half a pull.
Hardly any zip. Maybe needs to break in.
Ten tanks gas later I checked piston to head quench.
It was three times more than spec.
Cheap education if not counting my time.

Its our own fault for the most part as folks just want cheap cheap cheap. And thats what we get. ..... I have a bras plaque that I made years ago on a CNC mill at work. On it is says.

CHEAP
FAST
GOOD
................ PICK TWO.

People keep wanting all 3 and thats just not going to happen in the real world for the most part.
I have that plaque hanging above the lathe in my workshop trailer and it has been thought provoking for a lot offolks over the years that have given the thing a good dose of looking at.

I hate the use of American type names but the junk is made in other places.

Sometimes it's hard to find things that aren't made in China. I do what I can to avoid it.

Nah. It business owners that want the highest profit possible and also regulations that made things expensive to make here.

Sprung, no it's the people here, they want good cheap stuff and can't get either, but will not pay for American goods made here because they are cheap with buying it. People here don't care about regulations, government does because of liability suits affecting them. Share holders keep pushing for more dollar return as well, not a fan of china products however you do have to see where the dollar leads you !!

Soon as they learn that our stuff is top grade, out lasts anything from over there and get over the fact that it will cost them more because they choose to make more here, then things will get better.

Unfortunately, people like what they make here and are convinced they can make china cheap crap last by trying to back yard fix it !!

There is money to be made and it’s easier to hide in the import system, the same people that told us paper was bad but plastic was better have been playing us all along. Follow the money.

Yes, those plastic bags along the roads and in the trees and fences are SO much better than the biodegradable paper bags!

My Ford dealer is cheaper than the quick change spots, so I have stuck with their Motorcraft brand of oil and filters. Forgot who makes them.

I go to what many would consider Ridiculous lengths ~ and some Sublime expenses, just to Not buy chingchong.

I regularly need kitchen utensils. I go on the bay and search for second hand. Good, old fashioned stuff from a Grandma's kitchen.

Recently bought a ladle.

There ye go. What? Few $ at Walmart? I paid £9.00, to England. It was made there. Then, nearly £12.00 in postage! €25.57 all told. Could have got the same, in town, for €5.00. I don't care. It's all down to Principles, is it not? Each man standing up for their own.

Got my beloved, Indian made serving spoon from USA. Few dollars. Paid shipping through the nose!!! $23.00, if I remember? grin Who cares? I make my curries with it ~ in my Italian made pans. And they're my pride and joy! grin

Anything but 'Made In China'. China is a cancer.
