First question should be which table saw is made in USA, not just assembled but MADE here. I did find this,

Q. Where are the Sawstop saws manufactured at?
Q. Where are the break cartridge saws manufactured at?

A. SawStop saws are engineered in the US at our Tualatin, Oregon headquarters. Once engineered, the manufacturing of our saws takes place in Taiwan (Taiwan and mainland China are the manufacturing location choices for the vast majority of performance saw companies). The assembly facilities are ISO 9001 certified, and SawStop embeds manufacturing engineers in the process to monitor for and help ensure quality. These engineers oversee the inspection of component parts prior to final saw assembly, assess assembly procedures for consistency with SawStop requirements, and evaluate final production prior to shipment. Every SawStop saw must pass a 100+ point comprehensive inspection.

Aren’t Delta Unisaw’s made here. We’ve become so complacent with made in china.
