Is there some previously known problem with Indian made parts that I haven't heard yet?
Have you seen them try to make hand tools? They're horrid.
I remember about 10+ years ago bought India made Harbor Frieght wrenches. One broke when using and part of it went flying past my head. Went to Lowes and bought Kobalt set that day. Not sure what quality is like now.
I think the HF combination wrenches are still made in India . I have at least 2 sets of both metric & SAE . One at home & one on the truck . I have had no complaints about them .
Catch a set on sale for ~ $ 7 and they are cheap enough , if I loose or hide one from myself , no big deal .
At my age , I might break a tool , but doubt I will wear ir out .
As far as parts made in India ? If it is not made in USA , I pretty much groop them together .
