Pretend that you wanted to build a new shop with all new tools and you insisted that all those tools be built in the USA. What kind of a shop would you end up with? I honestly don’t know.
I don’t know where everything is made, but my intuition tells me that Shopsmith, Oneway, Kreg, and Incra are made in the US. I could be wrong. There may be more.
Are there any table saws, band saws, miter saws, routers, jointers, planers, of drill presses made in the US?
It is sad that someone who really embraced the “buy USA” concept would have great difficulty equipping a shop. On the other hand, it was us consumers that insisted on low prices and the building overseas was the way to accomplish that.
