I do look at labels. My tools are Falcom (French) and Wiha (German and Swiss), torque wrenches are Wera (German) and Geodore (German). I pay put of the nose for them. You can get a torque wrench for 45 bucks...mine are $1500. I bought a floor jack from DC Hydraulics (Denmark) earlier this year and was asking myself if I was stupid... Walmart has them for 60 bucks mine was $800...and it took 6 months because none were available in North America. I enjoy using quality items but you gotta pay.
