10 years ago, China was producing parts better than you could get in Europe.

They industrialized right. the machine shops upgraded at the clients expense. Basically, you move your product in, buy them the machines and they make the parts for essentially the cost of the metals. You save money, the machine shop makes money, plus gets new equipment. Now the Chinese machines shops have top of the line equipment, a crew that knows how to push buttons, and a few people that know how to write the programs.
China is basically doing to the US what the US done to Europe. Asia is the next big consumer market and they already are in some things. Everyone has a cell phone.

I ordered 6 Buck knives for the guys at work and they were made in China. 5 years ago I bought a Gerber knife and It was made in China. Last year I ordred 5 Gerber knives and they were made in Portland Or. Go figure
