 It's a rumor, the casting business is alive and well here. After all, engines are made here. Pipe is made here, etc. It's economics, not regulations that make the difference. And we DO put tariffs on imports, and often a penalty if the manufacturer abroad is being environmentally irresponsible.

This is in the category of rumor, but I understand that maybe our DEQ & 
EPA regulations have essentially outlawed certain foundry practices that 
makes things like drill presses, compresser blocks, iron pipe, maybe 
brake drums and rotors and hubs, etc, illegal or impractical to make in 
the USA

Would somebody like to check on this rumor?   :-(

I gota go milk.
