Saw this response this morning:
1. I do not use slave labor. Nor do I use sweat shops. Sweat shops do not hire skilled engineers to run CNC machines and pay them 20-30K USD a year.
2. My bearings, linear guides come from Japan and Taiwan. My electronics boards are made in Italy. My power supplies come from Taiwan. Everything else is made in the Philippines on US made Haas, Japanese CNC machines, Spanish Kondia mills and Bridgeport mills.
3 Since you have not been paying attention to the news, The Philippines is not having good relations with China right now. As such there is opportunity to make and sell machinery to the growing, rapidly modernizing industrial base.
4. 99% of my sales go to Asia. Why should ship stuff to Asia from literally half way around the world?
5. Dan: Stop bitching. Put something on your sore pussy and do it your damn self instead of being a whinny little cunt.
