Made In USA....got damn right

It might seem insignificant to most people, honestly, It seems insignificant to most Americans, I went into a hardware store the other day to buy some new drill bits.  I was looking for the Made IN USA bits and to my let down, this store did not carry a bit Made in the states....this included their own brand too...I was pissed that I was forced to purchase the opposing teams bit...now the fucking part that makes me sick...this bit set was around 60 bucks, when you pay that price you are thinking in your mind, ok im getting what I pay for...these bits are going to be sharp as hell and not go dull after one use, and be gar-on-teed....RIGHT...WELL FUCK that wasn't the case at all with these here bits...and mind you these are the super duper heavy mother fuckers that are suppose to cut through anything....well the first use the bit size I need fucking broke....so I fortunately was able to just up a size, that bit cut well at first and then after a few seconds fell short...and to top it all off these are not a warranty item in the store.....so I used my old bits....mother fuckers

Who knows thier rollers, lifters, tappets, and doo dads.......??????

 Ok its a good thing my issue of Show Class showed up today, cuz these mother fuckers are giving me a night off...good thing I have some good resources or nothing I fucked with would run..haha...I emailed my good buddy Noot these photos but was wondering if anyone else had any ideas on what this configuration would be.....top pic is the piece that the push rod rests in and is slid down inside the tappet block, now this is where it gets odd....under that little doo dad there is the spring pictured in the second photo......now inside the lifter is some sort of bushing that slides up and down that this spring is housed....which is no resemblance of a hydraulic lifter, and reason I say that is the fact that a hydraulic lifter assembly pulls out of the roller, right?  so i was told anyway....well any info would be great on this here set up cuz im not sure about it......
