    Where are Marsh gauges made at? Anyone know?

    Also I have a set of the brass YJ bourdon tube gauges. Yellow Jacket are these still made here? Do you offer any USA made Bourdon Tubes?
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    Where is all the stuff MADE IN THE USA?

    So what you are saying is that you abuse your precision instruments? In that case you might want to get on the digital revolution and use a solid state sensor that's more durable than any bourdon tube will ever be.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
    What does virtually all cover?
    Around here we have three choices for a set of gauges.
    Besides Yellow Jacket which are no longer made in the USA
    There is JB or Imperial on our supply house shelves.
    The other two make a huge deal that they are made in the USA
    Are they not made in the USA like they claim?

    Good luck with that ! Where are you going to find Americans to work for those wages ? Do you also expect Americans to pay 10 times as much so it can be made in America ? Not gonna happen, which gets back to what you said at first "We made it a (made in china) world"

    Regardless of where they are made I have always trusted Yellow Jacket tools and instruments.My gauges are fully made in USA.I always buy the classic old style gauges nothing fancy.

    Just started buying HVAC tools . Bought only JB so far. Vacuum pump,gauges and I really like them and the fact that they are made in the USA.

    Why don't you like Yellow Jacket. Just trying to learn about new products.

    Thanks Joe
