Grizzly has been shifting manufacturing to China for quite a while. I don’t believe it’s limited to just the Polar Bear series. The folks at Grizzly could tell you more.

It’s worth noting that the Leeson motor on the G0690 is also made in China AFAIK….or at least somewhere in east Asia. I’m sure it’s a very good motor, but it’s not made in the USA. I haven’t read any complaints about either motor.

It’s ironic, but the guts of the G0690 are more similar to the old G1023’s than the new G1023.

G1023RL trunnions (new):
