>'Central Machine' is a Chinese export [Delta are or were until veryrecently made in ummm Missouri, I think anyway, they wave the flag as
being 'American Made' ] Central Machine stuff are pretty much all
knock-offs of other designs.
Fine Woodworking, a number of years ago, did an article on buying imported
machinery, what to look for and what to watch out for. It was reprinted in
one of their, "Fine Woodworking on...." books, but I don't know which ones.
What I mostly remember was that the thing they seemed the most concerned
about was the thing you have the least ability to really check - the motor
and bearings. After that, they expressed dismay at cast iron stuff being
replaced with stamped sheet metal in some import tools.
