I want one of these

https://www.rockler.com/rockle...-offset-marking-tool

Can’t tell where it’s made and I really don’t want to buy Chinesium. Anyone know if there’s an option made in not China? My googlefu is failing miserably.

If one searches for the same tool on ebay or aliexpress, a very similar from China is found.

90% certain it's made in China/Taiwan/etc. Rockler doesn't make their own stuff to my knowledge.

I thought for sure Woodpeckers had something like that but I can't find it. There was something in their Onetime Tools catalog but it's discontinued.

Something like that is nearly certainly made somewhere in Asia. Odds are China.

Not particularly meaningful. Chinese counterfeiters will counterfeit nearly anything and everything, no matter how insignificant.

I've been amazed at some of the stuff I've seen counterfeited. One would think some of it wouldn't be worth their time.
