  • Will diecast prices go up?

    With the new tariff will diecast prices go up?

    A guess... no.
    Because it isn't raw steel.. even if it is steel at all in the metal. So I doubt that any new tarriff is added on top of die-cast than there already is if there is.

        Probably won't happen.
        I'm guessing here, but I'm thinking the US Harmonized Tariff used when they are imported might be this. I don't think they belong in the Base Metals section.

          Don't think so either as much as I would love it to cause enough of an issue that they would actually consider bringing manufacturing back to the US of A

          In the end it's just a negotiating tool

            If manufacturing ever comes back to the US it will be in the form of automation. Bringing it back is the false promise that every politician makes.

              I just meant the diecast, not overall. Totally agree on the automation.

                I would guess yes. Not because of the cost of steel, but in response to the tariff, all imports will go up in an attempt to offset the impact of the tariff.

                        It'd be ironic if they went to all this trouble to get prices lowered with the new format, and then dum dum's tariff's got the prices back up. Could you imagine 69.99 for a HO plastic chassis car?
