Who owns which marketing brand label is not near as interesting as who actually makes the equipment – IMHO

Things get real interesting when some one like Chang Industries in Taiwan buys the Delta product line from Stanely/Black&Decker, while making still making equipment for them?

Check out these folks are see if you recognize any tools from the wood working magazines?
(Harvey owns Bridge City Tools)
(Rikon anyone?)

If you are really bored, search and surf to actual china language home pages, and look at images.
Might have to look real close at images, especially factory floor pictures. They also seem to have a couple of OEM tools sitting in background, hoping new customers see them, and arguing with OEM’s that noone can read the brand name in image. LOL

It’s entertaining to learn tool sourcing as long as you are not stuck doing it. :-(

-- I'm an engineer not a woodworker, but I can randomly find useful tools and furniture inside a pile of lumber!
