I read somewhere that Lyndex outsourced some of its products including some collets, but I thought to somewhere in Asia. Maybe not necessarily bad but its all about QC behind the name. I would be shocked if they were made in India. You could call KBC or one of the Lyndex distributers & they could probably tell you country of origin. Now are there knockoff Lyndex on Ebay using the name, the price but not the quality? It would not surprise me.
