Made in U.S.A.

I broke my axe the other day so I decided to put 20$ of gas in my truck and go buy a new one somewhere. But 20$ doesn't take me very far at 6 mpg. So the list of stopping places was pretty short. But I was comming up empty handed and the gage was getting low when I decided to stop at China Mart to see what grade of import I could get. Much to my suprise I saw a familiar name, True Temper. Looking at the lable I saw not only was it made in Amarica, but it was also made right here in Pa. I guess we're still aloud to make and sell some things here.

No it was fabricated in our shop in Lancaster, I had to go there this week and fix some shop errors. It is just an amazing structure that I had to get some pics from on top I mean how often do you get to do that.

What happened to Rolling Rock ? Never was a fan. Did they go out of business, move ? I've never heard anything.

Mark, Rolling Rock was bought by Coors, don't know for sure if they are moving it out of Pennsylvania. Are you going to be joining the chapter?
