My Phase II tool post very plainly says "Made in China". I also have a Harbor Freight one that was made in India. Not so good.

Here's the free shipping code for purchases over $50. WBARN7 You will have to fit the "T" nut to your compound. A simple job on a milling machine but a circular one can be made on a lathe.
I believe they are Taiwanese, not mainland China. There used to
be a BIG difference, I think there still is at least a
substantial difference in QC and "fit and finish". You won't
find a pile of grinder dust in a Phase II tool.
