    Work ethic is more than just the boss' attitude.

    IMO perhaps it's because in other countries there is perceived to be value in people who design/make things, which is no longer the case here.

    Seeing the craftsmanship & care taken helps me better understand the pricing. Premium pricing for premium tools. Thank you for the guided tour...I can almost taste the snacks!

    What a great experience.....time to get home to get some rest :-)

    Flex seem to be somewhat vertically integrated (castings, cnc). Did it seem as though they make or purchase most of their components?

    Mike....will you buy me a CNC? That looks like a blast. I wonder if Flex is looking for an engineer in the next year . I had no idea that Flex made other tools. Just out of curiosity, do you know if they're available in the US?
