skymaster, I'm about 25 miles west of OS. Blackened or grilled?

iMisspell, interesting.....I hadn't heard of TTS before. Looked it up and they claim Festool as a subsidiary but the Festool site says they're still owned by one of the founding families. TTS appears to be a holding company, so either they own enough shares to have a controlling interest in Festool or, maybe, TTS is owned by said "founding family". Still a German outfit, though, at least for the moment.......

i think if you are looking for true independants, you need to look at the smaller hand tool guys, especially the ones that still manufacture in the USA. Most of these smaller family type businesses are still doing it on their own ( although maybe for not much longer).....
