Not trying to sell it or anything. Just trying to find out if it’s made in the USA or not.
Are Baileigh (sp0 Saws made in the USA as well. They say they are.
What is made in the USA ant more?

AFAIK, Jet has never actually made anything… they are importers. They do however claim that they have started playing a part in the design/engineering, but they still are built overseas. Here is a snip from their history page on the website:

JET pioneered the import business by working with overseas suppliers. We are proud to say we still do business with one of our original suppliers. In the 90’s JET grew from being just an importer of high quality machines and tools to designing and manufacturing its own products to stringent specifications. We are have an expert team of engineers both in the USA and overseas and a world-class supply chain ensuring prompt delivery of quality products.

As for Balleigh – this is what their web site says:

Plus, many of our best-selling products, including tube and pipe benders, abrasive notchers, and press brakes, are made in the USA.

If you visit their site, the FAQ says that each product page shows the location of manufacturer… but they don’t :(
For example, their $3000 “Professional” cabinet saw product page makes no mention of where it was made that I can find… and the link to the manual doesn’t even work.

Cheers,
Brad
