In truth, most of the imported brand name bits here are also made wherever, even the Bosch, and especially Stanley, B&D, etc. I prefer
South African - made. More expensive, but reliable, and I can always browbeat the manufacturer, if not satisfied. But not all sizes are affordable - limited market size = high prices, and may only need that size once.
The curse of globalisation. We used to make virtually everything here, even A-bombs, now everything is imported, from some pretty obscure places.
Mail-order brides are not big here yet, but I suppose that is only a matter of time.
