OK, I know this is old information, but this is a well done video of who owns and manufactures what tools. There is some interesting info buried in the video, also.

 

Do you know, that, there are two different Rigid tool lines; Orange colored and Red colored? The red ones are the true Rigid brand and geared towards the commercial end and the orange colored ones are manufactured, under license to Rigid, by several different companies. The video, also, touches on where the tool brands are based, what their annual tool sales, in dollars, is, and how many people they employ

 

Anyway, enjoy...

So it seems most tool companies today are owned by folks who have little or no tool knowledge..,aka Large Equity or Hedge Fund groups. Interesting Makita still stands alone and does quite well among the giants.

 

Didn't see who made this tool line...I have several of them.

Interesting to watch. I don't recognize all of the brands talked about, so it would be interesting to know who makes some of the tools available down under.

Apart from the obvious..... we know who makes those

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
