Patriotism really doesn't apply to tools.
Drill presses, lathes, mills, and woodworking equipment suitable for non-industrial use haven't been made in the US for many years. Delta, South Bend, and other US-sounding brands went to China long ago. Those of us who worked with US-made tools (and automobiles, and appliances, and furniture, and electronics, for that matter) during the '60's and '70's saw the drastic decline in quality. China, Japan, and Taiwan were essentially given the market, and their equipment proved superior to ours by a large margin.
Steel drills perfectly well with the inexpensive Chinese bench-top models if you aren't planning to spend the next three weeks drilling rivet holes in I-beams.
Again, recognize that every tool has limitations, and my observation is that those made in China are pretty good. So is Indian equipment. Both nations manufacture their own automobiles, submarines and aircraft, and they're not buying machine tools from us.
