The 28-206 is made in China. The 28-203 was Delta's basic, and only, wood
cutting 14" bandsaw until the past year or so ... made in USA, with some of
the forging done in Mexico for a while and sold in different packages, with
stand, without stand, limited edition, motor size (3/4 and 1 HP mostly), and
various model numbers designating package.
Reviews are mixed on Delta's new bandsaws and the model numbers have turned
into alphanumeric confusion. I'd buy used (anything starting with the basic
28-203) before I'd buy new ... just my .02
