Where a tool (or any product) is manufactured can be a bit broad, so hopefully this isn't off-topic, but are any of the big woodshop tools (table saw, jointer, band saw, etc) made in the US? Let's not consider accessories like blades, but rather the bulk of the tool itself (motor, table, support structure).

ETA: I'm interested in consumer-grade machines, not industrial.

  • I can't cite brands, but certainly some make that claim. – keshlam Sep 19 '16 at 17:44
  • General International manufactures some of its higher end machines in Canada – Steven Sep 19 '16 at 19:33
  • Do you strictly want US manufacturers or also the rest of North America? – rob Sep 19 '16 at 21:59
  • Let's clarify the scope of your question. Are you interested specifically in consumer-class machines or also industrial machines? Northfield still manufactures their equipment in the USA, but only industrial-class. – rob Sep 19 '16 at 22:01
  • @rob US preferred, but NA is good, too. I just didn't want to ask too broad of a question. I'm thinking more consumer-grade machines – mmathis Sep 19 '16 at 22:02

Shopsmith (http://www.shopsmith.com/) is one that comes to mind. http://www.stillmadeinusa.com/tools.html#Woodworking may have others.

Oneway Manufacturing, makers of what are arguably the most coveted and appreciated, (maybe the most expensive, too) wood lathes in the world, claim that all of their employees are in North America. (They are a Canadian company.)
