I’ve been looking at large lathes the last few years and would eventually like to get one. I prefer those made in U.S.A but am finding it difficult to find one. Some same made in U.S.A. but upon further correspondence I find that the steel comes from Asia but assembled here. I don’t know if the US policy has changed as to what determines that title. The government site shows an older version (think it is 1995). I contacted Oneway and they assured me their lathes are made in Canada with Canadian steel. That would be my choice if I couldn’t get a good U.S.A. one. I believe Vega bowl lathes are U.S.A but am not sure about the steel. To be called “Made in U.S.A.” requires a certain amount of products to be from the United States. I own equipment and tools from all over the world, like many woodworkers. I am a woodcarver so many tools are European, Japanese, Native American. I have power equipment from Asia too. My table saw is a Powermatic 66 with 5hp Baldor motor. Before it was bought out by Jet. I guess I’m getting tired of other countries making things that we used to. Or buying our companies like Japan owning Jim Beam or the Seattle Mariners or China owning AMC theaters. I know it is just as much our fault as theirs. But is it that difficult to get a large wood lathe made entirely in the U.S.A.? I wish there was a list of lathes that had a “list of their ingredients” that we could check before we buy it.
