The gearwrench sockets I bought from Carquest are made in Taiwan. So are the NAPA brand wrenches.

Should have got a repair kit instead. I would never trade any of my ratchets in for replacement with Chinese ratchets. Sears stocks or can get repair kits for all of their older ratchets. My local Sears store does not charge for them all though I've heard stores do.

Last I heard Craftsman Industrial tools are no longer being made. The only tools available are what's left on the shelf. By the way I own quite a few Craftsman Industrial tools.

Just more information: Stanley owns Craftsman. Stanley promises to bring back manufacturing to the USA on some Craftsman tools.

For years we just took them to the dealer and no questions ask, replaced them... That is why I have gone exclusive to Craftsman tools, because I can get it replaced right then, and have to wait..
Who pays for the shipping, probably the user!! And what if ya need it right then, gotta wait for S&K to send the replacement back.. P__s poor warranty. that's why I go buy new from Craftsman, Snap on or Mac tool.

Craftsman, Allen and Matco ratchet heads look identical, the handles are different. The Craftsman says made in China, the Allen says USA, don't know what Matco says.

Are we concerned only with made in the America, or is there also a concern about the company being American owned. Many companies are foreign owned.

Most tools or anything else might have some stuff made in the America, and other things from other places. Find one tool that says made in the America does not mean all of them are.

Those repair kits are probably sorry like the other new stuff. Only way they wouldn't be is if they are old stock.

When Irwin transferred production out of the U.S. they laid off 300 American workers. I won't buy them.

All I know is, I bought a new 1/2" drive ratchet a few months back and started off buying "Made in USA". The first one I got was a toss-up between two models. I liked one model because it didn't have the fat rubber handle, which makes using in tight quarters more difficult. However, the model without the rubber had two holes in it. The one I liked is #1 below and the one I ordered is #2. Look at the links and pay attention to the details I speak of.
#1 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EFL2FYY?ref=emc_b_5_i

#2 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EFL0ZGY?ref=emc_b_5_i

As mentioned, I didn't want the rubber handle, but didn't like the idea of my ratchet having holes going straight into the working mechanisms. So, I ordered the rubber handle. What I got did have the rubber handle, but also had the two holes, just like the other. I returned it. I contacted the manufacturer about the discrepancy, as the Crescent website shows the exact same photos. They told me that the photos without holes were wrong; that all of their ratchets now had those holes. They could not provide me a valid reason why, other than to say it's easier to lubricate them.

Next time I was in town, I looked at ratchets at Walmart. The best quality I saw there had the exact same problem - two holes near the select switch that would allow dirt and moisture directly to the inner workings.

After much research, I ended up choosing a different tool. Ordered it, got it, and LOVE IT!! Was just what I was looking for in the first place.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KLY1C5M?ref=emc_b_5_t

I hate not buying American. That said, I also can't spend my money on tools that I don't feel are adequate for my needs or well engineered. As for the Crescent company, all of this happened 5 months ago and even the manufacturer still has the incorrect photos on their website.

Proof of what?
You did not quote the poster your asking for proof from so nobody knows what proof you want.
