I browsed through the on-line catalog and was impressed by the apparent quality of their offerings. Baileigh, unless I’m very mistaken, does not manufacture anything. They distribute a line of tools selected from worldwide manufacturers, most of which are from Asian countries. They are akin to Grizzly, unlike Delta and Powermatic who designed and built their own line of tools in their own factories, at least up until a few years ago.
Without seeing or using Baileigh tools personally, I can only guess as to their quality when compared to Grizzly, General and Jet. They do look good though and I hope they prove to be better than what is now available. Their higher cost may reflect better quality. It would be interesting to find out where their tools are made.

Let me put it this way. Would you be concerned if the auto club you belonged to was sponsored by Chevy and you own a Ford.
