  • BT3000/BT3100 Made in USA.

    The original BT3000 were designed and made in the USA - Ryobi was located, I think, in North Carolina. This one a rare 240 Volt model made in 14th week, 1993 - first year of production. Rod Kirby's, I suspect since this was posted on Sawdustzone.org (BT3Central.com back then).

    Designed and manufactured in the USA it had all SAE fasteners - fractional inch. Even though the Nameplate said 254 mm saw (10 inches).

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

    Ryobi was headquartered in Anderson, SC and still is even though corporate ownership has changed over the years. My BT3K was and early build as was the BT3100 they sent me for evaluation.
