    How about posting some photos of the factories that produce your cordless tools?

    They probably can't. Communist countries are very picky about people and their cameras. Might show their slaves.

      Hmmmm

      I plan to be in Taiwan in a couple of months for visiting and to take care of some old business. I'll see if I can take a day and possibly drive by the Ridgid joint (I'll bring the wife to translate and see if she can sneak me in for a bit). Might be interesting to see what it is like compared the types of semiconductor factories I used to visit overseas.......

          Hey wwsmith,

          Pick up a couple cases of ZCIs while you are there and ship them home

            LOL. As popular a question as that seems to be on this forum I could probably make a killing bringing some back and re-selling. But, alas it is always hard to deal with customs and shipping fees these days so I will probably pass. But if they have any I might sneak a few into my suitcase! Amazingly enough I lived there for almost 3 years and never once thought to drive by this particular company and have a look.

              Yeah, I was just kiddin of course. It was my way of knocking HD and Ridgid for doing such a poor job of stocking these in the stores.

                On a slightly seperate humorous item, it is funny that many people in Taiwan do not (or will not) own things made in Taiwan.....

                I agree with the poor job of stocking accessories at HD though. It is quite unfortunate for the consumer to have to work so hard to come with a way to obtain these things. But I won't rattle on as I know this has been covered time and again on other threads.

                I am having some friends over there take a look around to find the Ridgid complex and give me some details. My wife called last night and they do not offer any type of private tours so I will have to work something else out if I do find the time to get there. Sometimes a sneaky handshake can do wonders in some instances!

                    It's either Zombie Communist Infiltrators

                    or

                    Zero Clearance Inserts.
