    Default Baileigh made in USA?

    Wonder if this equipment is USA manufactured? I have seen some Baileigh products here in the UK and it looked to me like slickly marketed and very costly Chinese made?

    Company just got lumped in with Jet Tools owner JWP. Don't worry, the 1% will be taken care of.

    yup, in March the NYC venture capital boys that own Jet, Wilton, and Powermatic bought Baleigh. Expect to see the same basic products sold under different brands.

    alot of their cutters are made in spain, still largely made in the US though. Almost all of their power tools are chinese.

    Well our college has a plasma cutter from them and the screen is covered in chinese writing, so I'd say no, unless something changed in the last two years. Overall, it's pretty poor quality.
