Vaughan Tools Since 1869

Creating Industry Standards in the U.S.A. for More Than 135 Years !

My husband went to Home Depot the other day to look for a particular tool, and was appalled that most of the tools he found were stamped with Made in China. Even the Craftsman tools we used to consider "so American" because they were made for and distributed by a once standard American company (Sears), are now mostly made in (I'll give you 2 guesses) China.

(In 2004, Craftsman tools came under fire when a lawsuit accused Sears of false advertising and consumer fraud for questionable use of the "Made in U.S.A." slogan. Today there is no such mention on their website. )

Trying to be a good American consumer, he searched all the tools and looked at all the labels for anything made in the U.S.A. And, lo and behold, he found Vaughan Tools!

Vaughan, headquartered in Hebron, Illinois, has been making tools in the U.S.A. since 1869! In fact, many of their products, which include hatchets, saws, landscaping tools, hickory handles and construction tools, have features that have become industry standard.

Howard A. Vaughan Jr. and Charles S. Vaughan, 4th and 5th generations, promise that Vaughan will remain dedicated to American manufacturing and will continue to pursue growth through innovative products. In other words, they're not going to start producing cheaper products in Asia so they can line their own pockets with gold.

If you're in the market for tools, consider buying Vaughan. With their quality standards and American ingenuity, you can't go wrong. Find out more at
