    Or, you could do like we do in the AF. Get some foam, cut it to fit the drawer and then take a hot knife and cut out around each tool you want in the drawer.

    ultimately, ...its a free will decision... stuff is still made in the usa, ...i've even seen more and more made-in-usa good showing up in my local walmart including many "plasticy" goods... if people choose made-in-usa over made-in-xyz, you'll start seeing more made-in-usa... you can influence it w/ your wallet...

    the foam stuff eats up too much space. I need to be able to pile some things on top of each other for everything to fit in my chest.

    I actively try to buy USA all the time.

    Yeah, it can get full quick. I still prefer it though over just having them roll around my drawers.

    Don't feel too bad the wife and I bought a dining room table and chairs that wasn't real cheap. Listed as "custom made furniture". Turns out the "custom made furniture" is made in...you guessed it chiner. We are now waiting on our third table to be delivered as the first 2 were unacceptable. I called the manager and said I want a 20$ discount which he agreed to but if the third comes back screwed up I am going to tell them to come take it all back.

    Already mentioned. I have too many tools, and sockets. I need to be able to pile similar tools ontop of one another.

    Prices are on the shelf. Prices are also sometimes on the item. There should be no surprise at the register.

    Lesson:look at the fuckin prices before you get pissed off. I've worked in retail and that shit gets old, is uncalled for, and is plain rude.

    I agree it's over priced for China made crap.

    The price on the shelf said $9.99. I mentioned that to the employee, and he said that the items were in the wrong spot.

    Is this what you bought? Or just the crappy plastic one that comes with the small tool set.
    EDIT: 6 pieces are included in this as I read it a second time.
