    Default Where is my "Made in USA" label on my Dynasty700?

    Am I blind? It is not on the faceplate like all my other Dynastys. Is it somewhere else or did they just forget to imprint it on? Usually it is on the upper left hand corner above the readouts.

    Not the biggest deal in the world, but for the money I paid for the 700, I hope that quality control could be a little better.

    Uh oh! Maybe it wasn't made in USA. I was happy to see "Made in USA" on my Zippo lighter yesterday.

    Apples and oranges but the Maxstar I looked at it was on the spec sticker on the bottom of the case.May be on the spec tag on the back on the 700.

    Maybe you should have gotten two Syncrowaves.

    Not that it's any of my business, but just to be clear, are you considering the lack of a "Made in USA" sticker to be a "quality control issue" ... or does it have issues that have to do with the function of the welder?

    Default Sell it where you make it.

    It has to do with:
    If you sell to the USA then it should be made in the USA.

    If you make it in china, sell it to china, etc, etc, etc.

    What I make in the USA, I sell to companies and people in the USA.
    I try to purchase my tools and equipment, and cars from companies that make it here in the USA.

    and it is just my opinion.

    HaHa! I am done with tranny tigs.

    The quality control issue is that they forgot to print it on my faceplate, where it should be.

    Like I said it is not a huge issue but I did call my LWS. The sales guy crawled all around it in disbelief. He is gonna find out if that is covered under warranty. I mean is it not prudent to have country of origin marked on it where you can see it?

    Jeez, I got 4 other Dynastys and they all have it printed on the face. I want a matching set.

    If you have a newer Dynasty 700 the labeling has changed. The text denoting the place of manufacture has recently moved to the rating card on the right portion of the machine face.

    I can assure you that the machine is still manufactured in the USA (Appleton, WI)! I have to walk by that production line every day on the way to my office.

    Thanks Andrew, but there is nothing on the rating label except a warning " Evidence of label tampering voids warranty", with a blank spot underneath.

    The Serial # is MC170235L. Could there have been a bad batch of labels?

    Looking at the serial number (tied to a manufacture date) it appears that your machine was made right during the transition period of the labeling. This would not be a drop in quality control, rather, it is entirely possible that the production line was utilizing the remaining labels. As a result there could have been a short period of overlap during the switch. I did check the machines coming down the line today and they do have the labeling showing it was manufactured in Appleton, WI, USA.
