Bosch 1587 Jig Saw now made in China
Noticed at HD this jig saw was newly priced at $99. I thought ‘Great, good deal for anyone who needs a good jig saw.’ Upon closer inspection I find it is now made in China. And now, this venerable standard of jig saws is being produced in China.
Got back to the van and pulled out my 1587. ‘Made in USA’. Somehow I just feel better having this one.
This is probably old news, but it startled me. Shouldn’t have though, with the way production has been moved. And, hey, maybe the quality is just as good or better (?).
