Onsrud Machine Works, Inc. was founded about 1914 in Niles, IL. They made woodworking machinery, especially pin routers, and high speed steel cutters for wood. They also made a line of metalworking machinery that was primarily used by the aircraft industry.

In 1968 the company was bought by punch-press maker Danly Machine Corp. of Chicago, primarily because of Onsrud's metalworking machinery. In the early 1980s Danly sold Onsrud's woodworking machinery line, and the Onsrud name, to a couple of employees. At some point the name changed to Onsrud Machine Corp.

The Advanced Technology Services website says that "Advanced Technology Services has acquired from Onsrud Machine Corporation all inventories, documentation, manufacturing and marketing rights for all Onsrud woodworking and metalworking machines previously manufactured and sold by Onsrud Machine Corporation in Wheeling, IL. ATS is now the source for replacement parts and repair service on all existing and newly purchased Onsrud machines."

Address: 2100 S. Laramie Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60650
