No better than where it was made, for that place too needs fixed. It wasn’t made in the USA it was made in the United States of America. It wasn’t of plastic to be thrown away. It was made of a metal in Towson, MD carrying the old name Black & Decker. But along the way greed set in knowing that if people didn’t throw things away the so called economy would fail. So throw it away and make the new like the old, rebuilding with the wipe of the willow. I will be fixing this one and using it soon as I have begun to do something about my plywood floors, to make them easier to keep clean on this old dusty road.
