    You can call it anything you want but as yet I'm not seeing any country copying what the US has. To be honest I don't know what anyone has planned as all pros and cons tend to vanish in some kind of...

    I've added a wee bit to my post you commented :cheers:

    Also if tax financed healthcare is communism then communism has won worldwide.

    Sorry Ox :)

    We have people here with plenty of money that don't want to wait so they either pay for private hospital admittance or, more normal, take out healthcare insurance. As companies here...

    When I read your post and similar then of course the USA is slipping further behind other countries re manufacturing quality. No, I'm not saying all other countries don't "cheat" now and then but it...

    That gets my curiosity. In your opinion is Gagemaker good or not so good? I believe they are expensive. :cheers:

    Certainly not all posts but what I'm getting from several posts is that how good an inspector is varies very much from place to place.

    What I look for in a good inspector is several things but...

    What I'd do was phone a few suppliers for brochures and information on the various types. Tell them what you want as well as what you want to use it for.

    After that then a price comparison + gut...

    Curiosity. How many have experienced that a brand name, over time, has become poorer quality? If yes, in what way?

    I don't mean feelings or hearsay, but "hands on" experience.
