PSI, I would break a junk socket.
Yes my Blue-Point Impact was made in Japan. I bought it at Loan Star
Pawn Shop on North Dixie for $60. I can get it rebuilt by Snap-On for less
My other non US made tools are high quality like Knipex Pliers. Made in
Germany, sold by a few Major tool companies such as Snap-On & Mac. I am on
my 3rd pair in 10 years because my other two pairs were Stolen. At $20 to
$60 per pair they are not exactly cheep. At 240LBS I'm not exactly a light
weight. I have put all my weight on these before to get a rounded bolt to
break free. It was 3 am, and the hot wrench was out of Oxygen, and the air
compressor wasn't wired up.
To make a long story short, If I bought the items you sell I would have
to buy 25 of everything, every year. Because I would break everything
constantly. The over all costs of doing that in the long run would far
exceed what I spend on tools once that if they break I just hand it in, and
get a new one with No Questions Asked, Ever!

BTW: When we find cheep tools around the shop, or in cars we scrap. We give
them to a friends 12 year old son to use for Toys. When this kid comes
around the shop and wants to tear in to a car, we let him use our tools. His
father has a refuse removal company. He too won't use your items.
