    I think the one I sent Butch a couple or years ago was MSA. It's a pain in the azz to get on but it works .I think I have three myself at the present time .I have a long torso so it takes a largersize to fit me ,Any thing shorter I tend to sing in a higher note .

    ABB-Asea Brown Boveri is like Stihl a multi national company .They like Stihl have an an excellent reputation world wide .It would be in their best interests to not let less than good products reach the consumer . There is much more than just labor costs involved when these companies decide to move their operations to less developed countries .Taxes for one thing as well as environmental issues .As far as China goes right after WW2 Japan was noted for making in essence cheap junk.That's changed because for the most part it's good stuff now of days .I imagine China will be the same way eventually. It might be noteworthy to mention in the auto industry labor costs in Japan are not that much different than the USA .Of course it costs more to live in Japan and the standard of living is a little less .Germany is the same way from those I have worked with from Germany .

    They all jumped on the band wagon. ABB a Swedish firm who builds among other things industrial robots now builds them in China .On those I haven't noticed anything different . You have to remember Stihl is world wide .I haven't noticed much difference in those built in Germany ,Virginia Beach USA or Brazil .Not mind you I'm even impressed a little bit with China but it's probably OK stuff .

    Cory, we have found the disc is very good with palm fronds. The engine is a Perkins 225 hp; there was an upgrade to a Cummins that was just out of reach for us. Our colors are Black and Yellow, but this is the first one painted black. The decals in yellow look good though.

    I had a chance to buy an older Shopsmith once but the guy backed out .Instead I bought a 4HP 12" direct drive cast iron top table saw with more value in cutters ,shaper heads ,dado blades and Freud blades than what I paid for the saw Circa 1968 Craftsman that sold new for $1800 ,set me back $600 for the whole lot .Some of those blades retailed for over 100 a pop .Right place ,right time ---- It's not an Oliver but does pretty good for what it is .

    Hey Gigi,
    I've been hearing your radio ad every week. Very effective! You will reach more clients through radio than you would through telephone ad.
