    manufacturing coming back to U.S.

    There have been several items in the news recently about manufacturing jobs coming back to the U.S. from China. Seems the high cost of shipping has surpassed any other savings that came from getting the work done in China. A furniture factory was featured last night.
    But, now, I have to wonder....if Grizzly starts making their tools here will they have to be renamed 'Panda'?

    now Frank, you know there's a US president we could honor instead, and he's even a Mason.


    Yup, they'd have to rename themselves as Teddy
