We’ll start with a short prayer from the gospel according to Joe:
Oh Lord please don’t tell me we’re going to start type studies of modern power tools. I don’t ask for much – clean air, a good roof over my head, some decent sitcoms on prime-time so I don’t have to watch B-list actors trying to dance or NJ trash being NJ trash, so please just give me this one little victory. It’s bad enough nobody can be happy with their Stanley plane until they know the exact day it left the factory, please don’t make us start doing the same with our corded tools. I’ll go broke trying to convert all my power tools to type 11s.

Now that that’s out of the way - Dewalt might be able to answer the question more exactly but a quick google surf shows mention of the illustrious DW788 type 1 (Made in Canada) sometime between 1993 and 1997. By 1999 there were complaints that the first generation of Type 2 (made inTaiwan) were not up to the same level of manufacturing craftsmanship.
