Word from Grizzly...

All tools made in China are going up 25% effective 6 July, any items sold/shipped on or after that date will have the new prices.
All tools made in Taiwan are going up 5%

From what I've heard every wood lathe is going up 25%

Only if Rikon's lathes aren't made in China

Every company importing from China will have similar price increases

Yes it's all about the trade war

I'm going to guess at least some of Robust's and Oneway's steels come from China (ie tariffs)

When I made the remark I did not know it was about Tariffs and in the other thread I made another remark.

It is all Chinas fault and wanting a double standard

Actually, there are a lot of dynamics going on, regarding the trading of merchandise. The currency war has been going on a long time and the entire world is saturated with paper assets of all types, which are merely promises to pay.

Nothing good is coming soon.

since the tariff is applied to the imported cost, you might not see all tools going up 25 percent.  They definitely have wiggle room if they want.

Grizzly has said a full 25% on the retail price of Chinese machines effective July 6th.  While there is potential wiggle room since it is on the import cost Grizzly says the increase in raw materials forced the full bump at retail.
