    Most needle manufacturers color code their needles for usage and size. These are not universal, but can be useful to see that your manufacturer is using the correct needle for your product. Wrong needle often results in avoidable damage. Michael Eisman

    #1 It's a irrational comment to say offshore manufacturing is a bad idea. It's a business decision, and a lot of businesses manufacturing offshore are starting to insist on ethical standards. Developing countries need this business to drive development.Don't make broad generalisations. Try to educate yourself a bit, before spouting on about psychopaths and morality.

    ...which is why offshore manufacturing is a bad idea if you're not the manufacturer. QC issues, safety issues, moral issues...all must be dealt with. If you're a psychopath that only thinks of yourself (1%-2% of the population), you don't lose any sleep over it, but for us regular folks, it's a highly disturbing trend. More and more incidents are coming to light of human rights abuses, like the factory in China, where the owner had to remove the fans because of the sheer number of workers who were using them as a platform to hang themselves. Yes...the working conditions were that bad.

    One of the pitfalls of doing business in China. If you intend to, check your brand and trademarks have not already been registered, and if not, do immediately.

    I once worked for a company, whose name was registered in China, by a Chinese looking for a pay out.

    Luckily enough, the idiot registered our company name, and not the brands we produced. We also worked through a trade finance company, so technically we did not do business in our company's name in China.

    Due diligence, due diligence, due diligence! I had an executive pound that in the heads of all his staff. We did business all over the world and anything new had to run by his eagle eye (literally, he had an eidetic memory and could catch the smallest detail out of place in a contract)!
