I find it funny that this discussion is really about the definition of the word "made."
If I take an assortment of parts made all over the globe and assemble it here in the states, am I simply "assembling in the Usa?" or am I making it?
My opinion is that if I don't make the raw products like the fet's, pc boards, or wire and use those components to build a different product then that is "made in the U.S." for me.
It's a timeless argument that can be made with something as simple as aluminum can's. Did the can maker "assemble the can" or "make the can?"
Funny and a waste of time....
