The last straw on my back, I can’t take it any more!!!!!!!
Watching another fear mongering show on tv a while ago, and seen an on running lie that has been repeated all across tv and the net…..
“big transformers” “No longer made in the united states” ………. “If they are destroyed” ………..”have to be shipped in from
overseas.” “months or years lead time!!!!”
In my previous posts on other threads, I have tried to point out that even if they were not made here anymore, they still don’t need to replace
them.. They can be rebuilt. I have been ignoring the manufacturing side. But enough is enough. I thought I would take the time to point out the
fallacy, because it is really getting on my nerves.
Every media outlet repeats it so much, but it is so wrong that there must be a conspiracy behind it. Industry representatives can’t be that
stupid!!!!!! It is almost like the government wants to scare the people.
It is unnerving to have to correct major broadcasting companies, and leading US officials and scientists on a basic fact. It is like sitting there by
a big white elephant that everyone is ignoring and feeling apprehension about trying to draw it’s presence to everyone’s attention.
It makes my head hurt to think that major broadcasters could actively promote such crap!
YES they DO make BIG transformers IN the United States!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In many places!!!!!!!!!
US transformer factories that make BIG substation transformers!

....... all over the place.

Lets see…… That is over 12 factories that I compiled in under less than an hour of searching. There is more in that industry in the US, but I
won’t take the time to list them. There is countless companies in the rebuilding industry that I definitely won’t take the time to list.
For those companies, I will just post a link to a youtube video that one of the small transformer rebuilding shops made. It will give you a basic idea
of the system.
It is obvious that they know this too, so how do they get away with feeding that crap to the people?
I know I have posted other stuff along these lines before, but if I repeat it enough, maybe someone will hear me!!!!
