American made power tools


Does anyone know what Manufacturers still make their power tools in the USA? I found some sites such as http://www.stillmadeinusa.com/ but the power tool info is somewhat limited. It could be due to the fact that nearly all power tools are not made in the USA.

Why do you want American tools anyway? The Chinese made ones are cheap and work great.

This topic sounds a bit like spam, but I'll bite.

I think given that most of the big tool manufacturers make their tools in China or Taiwan, most people have accepted the fact that very little is made here anymore. This is for the same reason that companies like Fein and Festool do not have products in everyone's garage; you literally pay two to three times as much or more for a tool manufactured in areas with high costs of labor.
