Most of the products made by members of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron Ship Builders, Blacksmiths, Forgers and Helpers aren't sold retail. They are industrial products the average person never thinks about, though we rely on them every day for electricity, gasoline, paper, and other household products.
However, many Boilermaker lodges do work for companies that produce consumer items. Many of these brands are the leaders in their field — well made and guaranteed to last. Two companies selling Boilermaker-made products even guarantee them for life.
Tools sold under the brand names of Craftsman and Ridgid are not only American-made by members of the Boilermakers union, but they are guaranteed for life. If you ever have a problem, you can take them back to any Sears (Craftsman products) or Home Depot (Ridgid products) for a replacement.
If you're in the market for any of the products listed below, be sure to give these brands a good look. They're made by Boilermakers.
