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.

Thats a good one Mark, I for one look for things particular to Pennsylvania, Hersheys, Yuengling, Tastycake, Goldenbergs, Peeps, whatever is native to our state. Any of you other guys out there know of PA. companys that may be known nationwide?

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.

Thumbs up

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?
