Recently on the lumberjocks web there was a discussion initiated by a Spanish woodworker about the advantages of European sliding saws. Well I never eally thought about and was interested enough to look into it. Everyone seemed to think that the German products were the best. Some posts were even snotty about it. But today while looking up Altendorf saws on E Bay I came acroos an Altendorf saw supposedly the best of the German saws. The post included a photo of the manufactureres info plate. Altendorf Sliding Table Saw Model: F92 - eBay (item 230480515709 end time Aug-25-10 14:22:50 PDT) Damn! this thing was made in China! Are all Altendorfs made in China?? Are Felders made there too??? Damn if I'm going to give up my rock solid American style Sawstop for some Chinese-made German saw. Is anyone familiar with the quality and origin of these "European" saws. Honestly, I'm bit bewildered after all the snooty insistence on getting a German made Altendorf.
