Not to be too nit picky, but you have to pay them, and also watch them. Either American QC inspectors on the line, or electronics that will shut the line down when problems are detected or said electronics are tampered with. If you sign the contract for a million widgets, the prototypes will be good, but then they turn up the dial so to speak, to increase productivity, plastics aren't given time to do their thing, etc, etc ... and its a downward spiral.

That's pretty awesome. I have no actual knowledge where CCH gets their castings, was just confirming the use of the 4.0 design in the BJ4000.
