Lie-Nielsen Factory Tour

Lie-Nielsen Factory Tour

Michael Christopher of Wuzzup TV a local community television show produced this Lie-Nielsen factory tour video. The show based out of Lincoln County, Maine is hosted by Bobby Whear and Kit Hayden and highlights various regional locations, businesses and events.

I am not sure if the hosts are woodworkers but they do a good job discussing various aspects of the Lie-Nielsen woodworking tool business. The video runs around 25 minutes long, has some lighthearted moments including one when the cameraman “walks into” a problem.

It is nice to see that all of the material and parts Lie-Nielsen uses to make their tools are from the USA, primarily from New England. As they state on their website at

We are proud to continue the tradition of “Made in America.” Instead of out-sourcing all our jobs for the cheapest price and short term profit, we are stubbornly local. We have found that the best quality is right here in Maine. We source our metal castings from New England foundries, our wood from Maine sawyers, and make almost everything else the old-fashioned way at our shop in Warren.
