I think we may be seeing some magic recalls on China based products in the near future. I have an independent tester running tests on some products and just awaiting the results. The recall on any level of these products would be huge.

As to the quality of China, again it's not China, it's the greedy person who contracts them out. I send a schematic to China for circut boards to run lighting on signs, I get different price tiers, my only concern is the quality and that it will pass UL inspection and approval. The reason I send to to China? Because I can get a prototype board done for next to nothing, then step it up to the high end board, where as the prototyping in the US would kill me. I often prototype out of China then produce it out of California. China isn't cheap, Amercian based companys are sometimes just greedy.

An INDIVIDUAL in any of the countries mentioned who takes pride in his/her work and has created a good reputaion should not be stigmatized by their location. Nor should that person be buried under the garbage some fellow countrymen turn out enmasse.

Some of the most fabulous art and craftsmanship on earth has (and still can) come out of China and for thousands of years. It can still be attained.

Magnificant Art and workmanship can still be found in Indonesia. There are great magicians and makers still there with pride in their work.

Forget the big plants and factories and mass production for the moment and put away a broad brush to paint an entire country.

Mad Jake is correct.

Doing your homework is not buying the crap that is thrown your way and then tossing it out with a swear word...a little research will find the quality you are searching for nearly everywhere...if there has been a tradition of craftsmenship, then there are still craftsmen... to dismiss them out of hand is your loss...the stickler enters the game when you are looking for cheap...then you get cheap...and many of those who contract for cheap junk mass produced are right here in the USA.

Having said that, I can understand the rankle...I too have never gotten anything out of India that was of superior quality...maybe I didn't look in the right places and relied on cheap Importers. I can't say.

But I have gotten some truly fine work out of China AND Indonesia. It is there.

But Cheap and Quality are not in the same sentence ANYWHERE.

Do not fooled by the price, some country can sell cheap not because theymake it in in low quality, but as developing country, usually they can find cheap raw material, and cheap labour/worker.

Thanks.

Yep CC...True but that is not difficult to determine with a little homework...even so there are LEVELS of cheap or what some would consider cheap.

Not a magic story but the old lady upstairs is a Quilt maker and collector. She was stunned when I brought a HAND MADE (hand Sewn) Queen sized Quilt to her for a slight repair. Impressed by the fine work to be sure. It had been made in China by someone who cared about what they were doing and probably got a whole dollar for the work if that. I went to the store and bought her one as a thank you...not telling her I paid just $15...but still a nice piece of work yet I would bet that there are people in whatever village that was, who would get $50 or a $100 for one even finer that could sell here for a couple of hundred bucks (most likely much much more if contracted by a Gallery and not a mass retailer.) still cheap for quality work.

I know a magic factory in India, and he made good quality items in brass and wood!!! His production accepted worldwide in USA and European. Sunil Batra items are great.
I know personally the owner Mr. Sunil Batra he is very humble gentleman with very much care to his family!!! And himself is the very skillfull carpenter and latheman.
KC Batra is his father, one of the famous magician in India in their era.
So, do not judge the book by it is cover...;o)

Thanks,

Yes SSUCAHYO is absolute right. I know a lot of items made by Sunil Batra and they are ALL FIRST CLASS made.
Usually items made in India are of not good quality, but Sunil Batra is an exception.
The only problem for us (the customers) is that he does not sell by retail. He sells only to selected wholesalers.

Maybe Rang magic, don't know .

Mayalink is over, he is one of the 3 builders who are in big difficulties like said by Newsmaya. Not secure for business. I suppose the one you spoke was Rangmagic,, but not sure. If you want more infos, contact me in PV. I will give you my experience. If it is another one I can't help you, but I 'm curious to know which builder you speak.
