Senere startet han for seg selv, og produserte en ny type turbiner som han solgte i tusenvis. Hans fabrikk åpnet i 1924 og snart hadde han 75 ansatte i sitt firma Onsrud Machine Works i Chicago.

C.R. Onsrud Family Reaches Century of Cutting Edge Innovation;

Gun stocks which housed the barrels and actions of the famous dough boy security blanket - the M1- Garand - were also manufactured with machines carrying the family name of that same Norwegian immigrant - Oscar Onsrud. 2015 is a special year for the Onsrud family - signifying the 100 year landmark event which transformed the machining world, and and the way we manufacture goods today.

In 1915, Oscar Onsrud and his son Rudy, invented the very first high-speed, air-driven spindle. This development replaced much of the existing belt-driven cutting and milling machinery, prevalent in factories of the day, and ultimately allowed for the creation of modern-day CNC machinery. The grandson of Oscar, C.R. Onsrud founder Charlie Onsrud worked many long hours in the old family facility in Chicago, Illinois where they manufactured customized machines for machining/building aircraft parts and much, much more.

Striking out on his own, Charlie adapted the family cutting technology and know-how for the large, wood manufacturing industry located in the Southeastern, U.S. He started with one machine - the inverted router, a machine which is still sold today.

As the opportunities to help streamline the production process, and offer more efficient machines arose, his company grew by providing specialized machines for the variety of needs within the industry. Driven by the same innovative mindset used by his father and grandfather, C.R. Onsrud focuses on building tailored, application-based machines for quality-focused customers.
