    A few years ago I helped out in the beginning machine shop classes at the local junior college. One night each semester was a "video night" and one of the videos shown was about how Stanley produced their screwdrivers. Several times during the video they would tout their high quality procedures and products. Some time later I was in Walmart and saw a couple boxes of the screwdrivers like those shown in the video, so I decide to look at them. I found one that had been assembled backwards with the phillips end inserted into the handle. Needless to say I spent the 88 cents, or whatever it cost, as an example of Stanley's high quality.

        They protect the working end against damage by keeping it inside the handle.

          How is the "Chinese Lego" kit's quality?
          When our kids were young and we were buying tons of Legos, the Chinese knock off stuff was just starting to come out. If the Kids got a kit for a birthday peasant or something, I treated it like the plague (hmmmm, sounds oddly familiar??) I would not let it mix with the rest of the population. They just were not of the same quality.
          Has that changed any?
          I'm still a Lego snob I guess.

            Quality has improved a lot since I was in Lego age (30 years ago..) but not all sets are compatible with Legos. Slightly different thickness so they don't really fit in.

                  That's good ! Just as bad as some of the manuals that come with their junk. Guess they have issues with their translators too.

                    Nope, that is an absolute QC PASS

                    "Quality Check" = observe screwdriver bad........ check box on QC sheet that says "Quality level BAD"...... Pass along to next packing station.
                    CNC machines only go through the motions.

                      We got some as a gift last year, but the tolerances were all over the place so some things were very hard to put together and others fell apart. In the bin it all went. Now there's many Chinese players so it's unfair to judge them all from a single experience.
                      However, I can afford Lego for my kids so there's no point in buying knock-offs and not supporting the company that helped make my childhood a good time.

                        I wear photographers vests. I had a problem years back with pockets. you could not get your hands into the pockets. you had to put in the fingers of both hands, pry them apart, wait for the pop. do this again and again until you removed the spider web of additional stitching that sewed the pocket shut, not together.

                          But we have to admit that the virus they exported is of an excellent quality.

                            Reminds me of a cross-slide drill press vice I used to own. It proudly claimed to be "MAD IN AIWAN".

                              Nah, back in the day they used to make these things properly when everything wasn't outsourced to China.
                              Like the 1918 Spanish flu from Kansas.
