As I just mentioned on the 348-409 site:

I like Harbor Freight, but there are some things I won't buy. Chinese made Jack Stands are one of them. I use US Made Stands only.

But that said, thanks for posting it. The general public needs to know on a widespread scale.

In a time machine.. I have some great old Ex-Cell stands made in the USA. Wish I hadn't sold my engine hoist from the same maker.

Hein-Warner stands are allegedly made in the USA. Northern Tool sells them but they may not be stocked in all stores.

US Jack Company is another brand to check out.

Both of those companies seem to have a whole variety of US-made products, though you may have to watch out for some lower-end products they offer that could be imported (2 ton floor jack from US Jack for example) or made with imported parts.
